Section i. The Society shall consist of active, corresponding, and 
honorary members. Only active members shall be entitled to vote in 
any meeting of the Society. 

Corresponding and honorary members shall be persons residing out

fee or dues. 

Honorary members shall be persons who may have rendered important 
public service to the State of Connecticut, or to the cause of historic

Section 2. Every application for active membership shall be in 
writing, signed by the applicant, shall be supported by the written 
recommendation of at least one active member residing in the State of 
Connecticut, and shall be accompanied by the admission fee of three 
dollars. Such applications must be made upon blank forms furnished 
by the Society and shall contain a brief personal sketch of the 
applicant. 

Bvery nomination for the election of corresponding or honorary 
members shall be based upon the application, in writing, of at least two 
active members, residing in the State of Connecticut, stating the reason 
for such nomination, and the qualifications of the persons proposed for 
membership. 

Section 3. No person shall be voted for as an active, corresponding, 
or honorary member until at least the meeting next succeeding the one 
at which his election is recommended by the Committee on Membership. 

When ever a vote shall be taken on the admission of a member and 
there shall be found two ballots against his admission, the presiding 
officer shall declare the election postponed. At the next regular meet- 
ing, if the recommendation of the Committee on Membership shall be 
renewed, he may be admitted by the votes of two-thirds of the members 
present.

The annual dues of members shall be payable in advance on the first 
day of May in each year. The payment of the annual dues shall con- 
stitute a condition of membership, and the neglect or refusal to pay the 
same for the period of six months after they become due shall be deemed 
a withdrawal from the Society.

president's Ctbbress. 



The custom of this Society requires of me at this time, and 
imposes upon you, what by courtesy is termed " the President's 
address. ' ' 

Little of consequence can be written here that has not al- 
ready been said, probably many times, by my predecessors in 
this office. They have dwelt upon the proven usefulness of 
the collections of this Society, in immediate connection with 
other institutions for information and culture which are 
located in this central and accessible place. These former 
incumbents of this office have time and again deplored the 
inadequacy of the space available for the accommodation of 
the rare and priceless collection of books, documents and relics 
which have been given to this Society, or acquired for it by 
discriminating officials during its existence of more than four- 
score years. 

Repeated reference to these conditions may not spend itself 
entirely in vain repetitions. Simple iteration of the needs may 
draw out sometime a wise suggestion which will materialize in 
practical plans for providing, — in conjunction with the allied 
institutions about this library, — space sufficient for the accom- 
modation of its collections, and facilities suitable for their use 
and display. 

The varied acquisitions of the Connecticut Historical Society 
at the present time include probably the most extensive collect- 
ions of New England genealogy and local history in the State. 
They include also the most complete collection of early Con- 
necticut imprints, and are especially strong in early Connecticut 
newspapers, laws and almanacs. 

In addition to printed works, the library contains several 
hundred manuscript genealogies and copies of town and church 
vital records, chiefly of Connecticut towns and families. It 
contains also many thousands of early letters and historical 
documents written by Connecticut notables from the earliest 



10 

settlements. Here are, carefully preserved, the correspondence 
of most of our Governors from 1725 to 1S27; of Colonel Jere- 
miah Wadsworth, Commissary General during the War of the 
American Revolution; of the Wolcott family for two centuries 
of William Samuel Johnson, the colony's agent to England 
of Henry Shelton Sanford, Connecticut's foremost diplomat 
of Samuel Colt; letters to Nathan Hale and his army diary 
the rare official papers in the celebrated Mohegan Indian case, 
and the records of the Susquehanna Company, which were 
instrumental in winning a recent law suit involving a consider- 
ation of six hundred thousand dollars. There are many other 
documents of practical use and of great interest to the historian, 
among them the agreement signed by Lafayette in 1776, under 
which he came to this country to aid the Colonists. 

The number of our members has so intimate and important 
a relation to the Society's usefulness that plans for adding to 
the membership of the Society are worthy of the serious con- 
sideration and the time which may be given to them. Several 
of our members during the past year have extended invitations 
to their friends to unite with the Society. The result is that 
new members have been added to our roll. A continuance of 
this activity on the part of the same members, and a share in 
it by others, will unquestionably increase our membership 
much more during the coming year. Those members who 
cannot avail themselves personally of the facilities of the rooms 
may feel that they are aiding a work of real usefulness, and 
that it would be difficult to invest a similar sum where it would 
be more helpful to the public interests. I would recommend 
that with the annual reports we again send a request to our 
members to return a blank form enclosed, with the names of 
men or women whom they will propose for membership. I 
would suggest, too, that each member ask other members of 
the Society to participate actively in this movement to secure 
additional members. This service, and the resulting increase 
in membership, will add appreciably to the development of the 
Society and to the successful prosecution of its work, and will 
undoubtedly be appreciated by my successor. 

During the year, while one hundred and thirty-eight active 
members have been added to the Society, we have had .the mis- 
fortune to lose by death:

died November 14th, 1920.

All were valued members of this Society, and useful, public- 
spirited citizens. 

Since the last annual meeting the Treasurer has received 
Five Thousand Dollars, which was bequeathed to this organi- 
zation by Miss Mary Kingsbury Talcott, who was for many 
years one of the most actively interested of the Society's mem- 
bers.

librarian's 2\cport 



Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

The year now closing, while it has shown a steady and 
healthy growth in the library, has not been marked by a large 
number of accessions or by any which are of phenomenal im- 
portance. In these respects it falls behind the two previous 
years, particularly in the class of manuscripts. A considerable 
number of minor items relating to Connecticut have been 
secured, particularly pamphlet histories and addresses relating 
to numerous towns, church manuals and ecclesiastical pamph- 
lets. As has been the case for several years, the excessive 
prices at which the newly issued genealogies and local histories 
are published and the greatly increased price asked for the 
older publications of these classes have for the most part pre- 
vented the purchase of them. While the Society's finances 
are now in a somewhat better condition than they were a few 
years ago, the slight improvement has not kept pace with the 
rise in the prices of books, and the whole of the appropriation 
for purchasing could easily be spent for a few high priced 
and much desired volumes. 

Our accessions for the year, exclusive of manuscripts, are by 
gift 376 volumes, 745 pamphlets and 117 miscellaneous items 
including leaflets and broadsides; by purchase, including six 
volumes credited to special funds, 97 volumes, 234 pamphlets 
and nine miscellaneous. These make a total of 473 volumes, 
979 pamphlets and 126 miscellaneous, or a grand total of 1,578 
items. 

The purchases credited to the Lucy A. Bra! hard Book Fund 
are Topsfield, Mass., town records, vol. 2, 1 739-1 778; Vital 
records of Deerfield, Mass., to 1850; Vital records of Mendon, 
Mass., to 1850. From the income of the Charles J. Hoadly 
Fuiid were purchased Records and files of the quarterly courts 
of Essex county, Mass., vol. 8, 1680-1683; Probate records of 
Essex county, Mass., vol. 3, 1 675—1 68 1 . The genealogy of the 
Breck family was purchased with income of the William F. J. 
Board man Fund.

One interesting historical study has been published during 
the year, and a copy presented to us by the author, the material 
for which was gathered almost entirely from manuscripts 
and books in this Society's library. It is " Influences toward 
radicalism in Connecticut, 1754-1775," by Edith Anna Bailey. 

At the time of my last previous report volume eighteen of 
our series of "Collections," comprising the secoud and con- 
cluding volume of the Governor Thomas Fitch papers, 1759- 
1766, was in the hands of the binder. This volume, a book of 
480 pages, has been completed and issued. The annual report 
for the year ending' with May 1920, a pamphlet of 44 pages 
comprising statistics and the reports of the Society, was issued 
in July. 

Another volume of "Collections" is now in press. Unex- 
pected delays in the work have prevented any rapid progress 
towards its issue. It will comprise the official correspondence 
and papers of the Colony of Connecticut during the governor- 
ship of William Pitkin, May, 1766 to October, 1769. The 
period covered is a comparatively short one, and the volume 
will be thinner than several that have preceded it. 

The number of readers who have used the library during the 
past year is 3,110. This is an increase of 17 per cent over the 
number for the previous year. 

In 1908 the Society received as a bequest from George Aus- 
tin Clark of Utiea, N. Y., a portion of the manuscript diary of 
Rev. David Avery covering about fifteen years between 1771 
and 1805. Later it was learned that Mrs. Frederick P. Part- 
ridge of Hartford was the owner of another portion of the same 
diary covering more than seven years between 1775 and 1S15. 
This manuscript Mrs. Partridge has very kindly placed in the 
Society's hands for copying and the copy, made by Miss Mar- 
jorie Ellis* is now almost completed. When the copy is fin- 
ished there will be available in this library for consultation 
either in the original or a copy the following years of the diary: 
Jan. i-Juue 15, 1 77 1 ; Nov. 18, 1772-Nov. 25, 1777; April 7, 
i77S-Dee. 31, 1786; Jan. i-Dec. 31, 17S9; Jan. 1, 1791-Dec. 
31, 1792; Aug. 6-Dec. 31, 1794; Jan. 23, 1799-Sept. 10, 1S00; 
Dec. 2, 1801-Aug. 1, 1802; Jan. 14-Feb. 14, 1S05; Jan. S, 
1813-Dec. 31, 1S15. The diary records events in a long and 
busy life, for Mr. Avery in addition to holding pastorates in 



Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut, served as a chaplain 
in the Revolution for four years and went on extended mission- 
ary tours in New York state. 

The correspondence of the Society during the year has been 
large. With the help of Miss Ellis as assistant during certain 
regular hours, better service has been given to enquiring cor- 
respondents than has sometimes heretofore been rendered. It 
is impossible to undertake to answer in full all of the questions 
that are asked by letter. To do so would occupy the entire 
time of one person. It is, however, often possible to refer the 
enquirer to some one who may be able to answer the questions, 
or to some genealogist who would undertake the work; 
although a large number of enquirers appear to expect the 
desired information without expense to themselves — even to 
the extent of a postage stamp. 

The following is a list of the manuscripts acquired during 
the year and the sources from which the}* were received: 

Benjamin Adams, JVethersfield.

ton, S. C, from Frederick C. Norton; Towns of Old England 
and New England, 1620- 1920, part I, from Allan Forbes of 
Boston. 

A portion of the Porter-Belden collection of old furniture, 
which was loaned to the Society some years ago, has recently 
been removed by the owner and is to be placed in the historic 
Webb house at Wethersfield, from which town it originally 
came. 

Col. Calvin D. Cowles, U. S. A., retired, of Hartford, has 
made the Society a very acceptable and valuable gift of Indian 
leather and bead work gathered by him while in active service 
in Indian Territory in 1S79. Among the articles are a beau- 
tifully beaded papoose carrier on a wooden frame; two long 
leather bags, fringed, quilled and beaded; two long saddle bags, 
fringed and beaded; pair of long leggins and moccasins com- 
bined; pair of leggins, beaded; pair of leggins, fringed; two 
tobacco pouches with painted designs; nine small pouches, bags 
or cases, beaded; knife sheath, beaded; five pairs of moccasins, 
beaded; pipe with bowl of pipestone inlaid with lead and 
wooden stem; stone pipe bowl; bed made of small sticks; bow 
and arrows with iron points; woven Navaho sash; pack of 
playing cards made of raw hide, painted with Mexican designs. 
Accompanying the Indian collection were a dozen pieces of 
native Mexican pottery gathered by Col. Cowles in Lower 
California in 1874 including large and small jars, water bottles, 
pitchers and cups, the majority of them handsomely ornamented 
with colored designs. The whole form a most interesting 
collection. 

The printed genealogies added during the year are of the 
families of Barney, Breck, Church, Doubleday, Doude, Eno, 
Ewing, Fyfe, Gardiner, Gilbert, Hay ward, Hosmer, Hub- 
bard, MacClanghry, Marks-Platt Ancestry, Maxwell, Parsons, 
Peters, Rugg, Seidell, Skinner, Taylor, Warren, Willard re- 
union, Weltqn-Upson. 

Fourteen items have been added to our unrivaled collection 
of eighteenth century Connecticut imprints. They are of the 



following years, [1772], 1784, 1786, 1790, 1791, 1794, 1795, 
1796(2), 1797, 179S, 1799(2), 1800. A number of imprints of 
this class have been acquired by the adjoining Watkinson 
Library; the earliest being of 1728. 

A large and curious water jar or jug was presented by Julia 
F. White of Hartford. It bears the inscription " Isaiah Gil- 
bert, West Hartford Conn. Made by T. Harrington, Hart- 
ford, Conn." From a grandson of the maker now residing in 
Hartford it is learned that Thomson Harrington, a native of 
North Brookfield, Mass., was working as an apprentice in a 
pottery in Hartford 1823- 1826. From here he went to New 
York state where he established potteries and carried on the 
business for many years. 

Mrs. Louise Woodbridge Percy of Chicago has presented the 
Society with a portrait of Brigadier General Timothy Robbins 
Stanley. Gen. Stanley was a native of Hartford but removed 
when young to Ohio and served in the Civil War from that 
state. 

The necessary space for both books and manuscripts is woe- 
fully deficient, making the situation a very discouraging one 
for your librarian. Books are placed upon the ledges, laid 
upon other books or placed in double rows on the shelves, and 
piled upon the floor or upon temporary shelving in our store- 
rooms. It is the same with manuscripts. The shelves of our 
manuscript vault are overflowing, and numerous boxes of 
manuscripts are temporarily placed on the shelves or floor of 
our vault room for books. When can we hope for more ade- 
quate accommodations for our treasures? 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

president's CT&bress. 



The year which this Annual Meeting brings to a close has 
been, when all things are considered, a period of encourag- 
ing prosperity and progress in the affairs of the Connecticut 
Historical Society. 

The wisdom and care of your committee on monthly papers 
have resulted in an increased attendance at the regular meet- 
ings. 

The membership campaign which has been in progress for 
some time has continued to produce some, though diminishing, 
results, and several new names have been added to the roll of 
the Society in the last year. But unfortunately we have lost 
by death during this time a large number of valued and influ- 
ential members, some of whom have been for many years 
among the Society's most earnest supporters. 

The Hon. Edward Stevens Henry of Rockville, a Vice- 
President of the Society, who was admitted to membership in 
1890, died February Sth, 1922. 

Dr. Williston Walker of New Haven, admitted in 1891, 
died March 9th, 1922. 

Mrs. Sarah L. Pitkin of Hartford, admitted in 1890, died 
in August, 192 1. 

Thomas Snele Weaver of Hartford, admitted in 1890, 
died February Sth, 1922. 

Mrs. Mary B. Brainard of Hartford, a life member, ad- 
mitted in 1904, died July 23rd, 1921. 

Mrs. Mary R. Perkins of Hartford, admitted in 1S90, a 
life member, died July 6th, 1921. 

Mr. Charles Griswold of Guilford, admitted in 1906, 
died November 6th, 192 1. 

Major Edward V. Preston of Hartford, admitted in 190S, 
died July 10th, 1921. 



Mr. Frederick Bostwick of New Haven, admitted in 
1909, died January 22nd, 1922. 

Mr. George Perry Chandler of Hartford, admitted in 
1920, died January 15th, 1922. 

Col. William Converse Skinner of Hartford, admitted 
in 1920, died March 8th, 1922. 

Col. William Henry Hall of South Willington, admitted 
in 1921, died February 14th, 1922. 

Mr. Charles Luther Spencer of Suffield, admitted in 
May, died September 21st, 192 1. 

Miss Katharine A. Prichard of Waterbury, the historian 
of that town, admitted to membership in 1902, died March 13th, 
1922. 

Mrs. Selah Raymond of Hartford, admitted to member- 
ship in 1904, died in January, 1922. 

Judge Edwin Baker Gager, an ex-officio member since 
1901, died April 28th, 1922. 

In the course of the year one ex-officio member has been 
retired by age, three members have resigned and one annual 
member has become a life member, forty-one persons have 
been admitted to active membership and two ex-officio mem- 
bers have been added. The present membership consists of 
eighteen ex-officio members, two of whom are active, four 
hundred twenty-two active members, thirty-five of whom are 
life members, one honorary member and three corresponding 
members. 

In consequence of the active and persistent efforts which 
many of our members have made to increase the membership 
of the Societ}% one hundred and ninety-three new names have 
been enrolled within the last few years, but, because of the 
large number of deaths, the net increase during the period of 
this canvass, — from May 1919 to May 1922, — amounts to only 
one hundred and ten, consequently the active membership of 
the Society, which was three hundred and fourteen three years 
ago is now but four hundred and twenty-two. What may be 
termed the favorable prospects for approach have been very 
thoroughly considered. It seems probable, therefore, that it 
will be more difficult to find new members during the next 
few years than it has been during the last two or three years, 



but it should not be impossible by earnest work to add some- 
what to the roll as each year passes. 

Inasmuch as a rather stout insistence upon the probable 
benefit of a rotation in the office of President of this Society 
has in the end carried conviction, I am encouraged to suggest 
the advantage of rotation in the locality recognized when the 
nominee for this office is selected. People in various parts of 
the State belong to this Society. People in comparatively dis- 
tant towns who are members of their own local historical soci- 
eties have shown a keen interest in the affairs of this Society 
by writing cordial letters offering useful suggestions for its de- 
velopment and progress. Gifts of valuable historical material 
have come from various sections of the State, and at times de- 
cedents without the boundaries of Hartford have left bequests 
to the Society. It seems logical, therefore, that the President 
of the Society should be chosen from time to time from differ- 
ent parts of the State, not on the ground solely that gratitude 
is, as has been said, " a lively appreciation of favors to come," 
but chiefly as a polite acknowledgment of the interest which 
many people residing outside Hartford have shown in this in- 
stitution which is known as the Connecticut Historical Society. 

So far as I am conscious of any coherent purpose in my 
earnest desire to promote the welfare of this Society, that pur- 
pose has been directed toward broadening the field for contri- 
butions to the Society and extending the interest in its work, 
with the idea that co-operation among the people and the in- 
stitutions in this State concerned in historical research will be 
mutually helpful and stimulating, of advantage to each other 
and of advantage to the work as a whole. The obvious bene- 
fits of this plan will, it seems to me, be furthered by the adop- 
tion of the suggestion offered. If there is a difference of 
opinion on the subject, that of itself invites discussion. In 
any event, the interests of the Society will not suffer from a 
free and frank consideration of the question. The decision 
may not be important. It ma)- not effect the interests of the 
Society in any way. On the other hand it may disclose a 
glimpse of the Society's future, and there are those, I am told 
who think that they could turn the gift to practical purpose if 
they possessed the prescience to divine the future scope and 
ultimate destiny of the Connecticut Historical Society. 



During the past year the Society has had the good fortune 
to include Mr. Francis T. Maxwell of Rockville in its list of 
Vice-Presidents. 

The year has been made memorable also by the gift from 
one of the older members of bonds to the amount of twenty 
thousand dollars par value to constitute the nucleus of a build- 
ing fund. 

As an addition to other funds of the Society there have been 
received, a legacy of $3,000 from the estate of Dr. Gurdou \V. 
Russell, a legacy of $5,000 from the estate of his widow, Mrs. 
Mary I. B. Russell, and a bequest of §500 from the late E. 
Stevens Henry. 

The Treasurer will show you in his report that moneys re- 
ceived have been promptly and carefully invested. 

Your Secretary and Librarian will tell you in detail of his 
efforts, which appear to have been more than usually produc- 
tive of notable results. The end of this year completes a 
period of thirty years of service on the part of this officer ; Mr. 
Albert C. Bates. The efficiency and marked success of his 
labors during these three decades will be recognized in some 
degree in a minute to be inscribed upon our records, which 
will be prepared by Mr. Forest Morgan, who was appointed 
for this purpose by a vote of the Society at its regular meeting 
on May 2nd. All who have had an opportunity to know of 
the work of Mr. Bates understand that his devotion to this 
service is absolute, that his zeal for his work never flags, and 
that his industry in its pursuit never abates. During the 
period of my incumbency of this office I have felt under con- 
tinued obligation to him for the inspiration of his enthusiasm, 
for the encouragement of his hearty co-operation, and for the 
comfort of his unfailing courtesy in all things. 

As I lay down the pleasant duties of this place I want to 
thank him for his help and cheer, and I wish to thank you all 
for your kindliness and encouragement during the time of my 
service, and for your friendly indulgence in permitting me to 
enjoy the distinction of occupying this honorable office for so 
long a time. 

George C. F. Williams, 

President.

librarian's 2\cport. 



Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

Wh.eii^5resenting this my thirtieth annual report it seems 
only natural to look back for a moment and view in retrospect 
some incidents of these years. In 1S92 the building of the 
Wadsworth Atheneum was being enlarged and rearranged. 
Late in the year the Society's library was installed in the stately 
room vacated by the Watkinson Library, the historical relics 
were once more arranged in the Society's hall, the newspapers 
were placed in the room assigned to them, and the older news- 
papers and manuscripts were arranged in the respective vaults 
which had been allotted for that purpose. The funds at this 
time were exceedingly limited and the prestige of the Society 
had become somewhat dimmed through death of members and 
general lack of interest, although a revival of interest had 
begun about three years previously. Since then there has 
been marked growth and advancement along every line: the 
membership has more than doubled, the average number of 
gifts has more than doubled, the annual income from all 
sources is more than five times what it was, the genealogies 
occupy more than five times their former space, the local 
histories at least four times what they did, newspapers re- 
quire perhaps eight to ten times their former shelf space, 
manuscripts have grown to four or five times their former 
number. In the matter of publications, seventeen volumes 
have been issued in our regular series of " Collections," three 
volumes not in that series, a pamphlet report each year show- 
ing the work of the Society, and several miscellaneous pamph- 
lets. The number of our readers shows a fairly constant 
and steady increase from year to year, except during the years 
of the recent war. Our monthly meetings are well attended 
and many papers of historical interest have been read at them. 
We are recognized the country over as one of the foremost 
historical societies, and our books and manuscripts are con- 
sulted or information sought from them by persons from all 
parts of the United States. 



— u — 

But there is also a dark side to the picture. Growth of 
the Society, its work and its library requires increase of space 
and demands increase in service to care for it. In the matter 
of space we are woefully deficient, almost to a point beyond 
the belief of any one who has not actually seen our general 
library, stack room, newspaper room, directory section, storage 
rooms, and manuscript vaults. In 1910 our main library was 
moved from the old Watkinson room to handsome and well 
lighted rooms across the front of the Atheneum building; 
but, alas, except for the addition of a large newspaper room, 
there was no increase in shelf space. In fact there was a 
slight decrease in the linear feet of shelving for the ordinary 
run of books. Shelves are now crowded to their limit and 
floor space is occupied by books. There is very little oppor- 
tunity to arrange and classify material when there is no space 
for properly placing and shelving it. Our future as a society 
depends upon our having within a reasonable period of time 
additional room for the arrangement and placing of material 
that we already have and to accommodate future growth. 
Added space will necessitate the services of an all time assist- 
ant, and this in turn will call for an increase in our funds. 
The whole matter constitutes a difficult problem, to the neces- 
sity for solving which I respectfully but urgently beg to call 
the attention of the Society's officers and members. 

By reason of the amount of editing and printing that has 
been done, the year has been an unusually busy one for your 
librarian and chairman of publication committee. Because 
of the high prices prevailing, not as many books as usual 
have been purchased for the library; and the number and 
variety of gifts to the library has not been as great as in 
some former \ T ears. On the other hand, the number of our 
members has increased, a considerable general interest in the 
Society and its work has been apparent, and our monthly 
meetings have been well attended. 

The number of our readers is almost precisely the same as 
last year; but is larger than for several years previous to last 
year. The total for the year is 3,113. 

The nineteenth volume of the Society's series of "Collec- 
tions," comprising "The Pitkin Papers," correspondence and 
documents during the governorship of William Pitkin, 1766- 



15 

1769, a book of 340 pages was issued, after numerous delays, 
about three months since. The usual ''annual report" of 
the Society, a pamphlet of 47 pages, was issued in July. 
The volume of Pitkin Papers forms the ninth to be issued by 
the Society containing in unbroken sequence the correspond- 
ence of the governors of Connecticut from 1724 to 1769, cover- 
ing the governorships of Joseph Talcott, Jonathan Law, Roger 
Wolcott, Thomas Fitch and William Pitkin. 

Mr. William C. Gilman of Norwich deposited with us in 
January, 1909, three volumes containing about 400 letters 
written by the Huntington family, the majority of them by 
General Jedediah Huntington, and chiefly during the period 
of the American Revolution, in which he was an active par- 
ticipant. It w r as the understanding at the time of making 
this deposit that unless recalled during his life these manu- 
scripts should become the property of the Society upon Mr. 
Gilman' s decease, an event which occurred only a few weeks 
ago. 

About three years ago Mr. Edward Gray of Milton, Mass., 
offered to the Society for publication annotated copy which 
he had prepared from manuscripts in a private collection in 
Boston of about 250 letters forming the correspondence of 
Lieutenant Colonel Joshua Huntington of Norwich, brother 
to General Jedediah, from 177 1 to 17S3, principally during 
the period of the American Revolution, in which he was an 
active participant. 

The Society accepted Mr. Gray's very kind offer and during 
the past year has voted to issue these two series of Huntington 
letters as its next volume of "Collections." Work upon this 
volume has been pushed as rapidly as possible and 2SS pages 
are already in print. No more will be done on the volume 
until late summer, when it is hoped to complete and issue it 
without further delay. 

Lemuel A. Welles, Esq., of New York, a member who is 
always actively interested in the work of the Society, came 
into possession not long ago of a quantity of letters and 
papers of the Wyllys family, one of the earliest and most 
important families connected with the settlement of Hartford. 
The earliest of these papers is of about the time when the 
family settled in Hartford, and they come down to about the 



10 

period of the French and Indian War, with a few of later date. 
Among them are letters which passed between members of 
the family in England and Hartford between 1640 and 1660; 
priced and itemized lists of goods sent to Hartford from Eng- 
land before 1645; lists of the heads of families in several of 
the towns of Connecticut in 1669; numerous official letters 
during the period of King Philip's War, and a complete list 
of the soldiers serving from Connecticut in Queen Anne's 
War in the year 1710. There is also considerable correspond- 
ence of members of the Woodbridge family, one of whom 
married a Wyllys. Of strictly local interest are a number of 
papers relating to the First and Second churches in Hartford. 
Mr. Welles has very kindly offered this Society the privilege 
of printing these papers, an offer which has been most grate- 
fully accepted. About two hundred tw T enty five of them have 
already been copied; the majority of them copied in New York 
under Mr. Welles' supervision, the others under your libra- 
rian's supervision from photostat reproductions furnished by 
Mr. Welles. It is anticipated that these papers will make a 
volume of exceptional interest. 

In the death on October 19, 1900, of Charles Jeremy Hoadly, 
LL.D., this Society lost a long time member and an honored 
president, and the State Library of Connecticut lost a distin- 
guished and learned librarian, who had faithfully served the 
state in that capacity for almost half a century. While serv- 
ing as State Librarian, and acting under Resolutions of the 
General Assembly, Dr. Hoadly transcribed and edited the 
Records of the Colony and Plantation of New Haven (163S- 
1664) in two volumes and the Public Records of the Colony 
of Connecticut volumes four to fifteen (16S9-1776), volumes 
one to three having been issued by his predecessor. Follow- 
ing the issue of these, he continued with the Public Records 
of the State of Connecticut, and published two volumes cov- 
ering the period from October 1776 to April 1780 inclusive. 
Pie also prepared a third volume containing the public records 
of the state from May 1780 to the close of 1781, with the 
records of the Council of Safety for the same period and in an 
appendix the proceedings of the Boston convention of August 
17S0, the Hartford convention of November 1780, the abortive 
Providence convention of April 1781 and the Providence con- 



vention of June 1781. Failing health prevented Dr. Hoadly 
from publishing the volume. This third volume has now 
after a lapse of more than twenty years been published by 
Mr. George E. Hoadley, a brother of its distinguished com- 
piler. Mr. Hoadley, who is deeply interested in this Society, 
has arranged, to have the Society attend to the sale of the 
volume, and copies may now be obtained at the price estab- 
lished by him of six dollars. 

Among valuable and interesting books that the Society has 
acquired may be mentioned a life of Jared Ingersoll, which 
is as much a history of the time as a biography of the man, 
presented by the author Lawrence H. Gipson; Anthology and 
bibliography of Niagara Falls in two volumes, from the New 
York State Library ; Life of General Artemus Ward, for 
which this Society furnished some material from its manu- 
scripts, from the New England Historic Genealogical Society; 
part two of Towns of Old England and New England from 
Allan Forbes its author; from J. Franklin Jameson of the 
Carnegie Institution of Washington volume I of Letters of 
Members of the Continental Congress, a work for which this 
Society furnished many letters written by the members from 
Connecticut; East Haddam Advertiser, volume I, 1869-1870, 
possibly the only file extant, from Frederick L. Ray of East 
Haddam; extracts from Washington's Diaries, 1791-1799; 
from Oral S. Coad his article on "An early college play" — 
The Mercenary Match by Barnabas Bidwell of Yale — of which 
this Society owns one of the three known copies. Fifteen 
numbers of the Connecticut Journal were added to our im- 
perfect file for the year 1794. The last ten volumes com- 
pleting our purchase of the Chronicles of America series were 
received in August. 

A copy of the rare Yale College "Theses" of 1781 , printed 
at Hartford by Hudson and Goodwin has been secured by the 
Society. Concerning this broadside President Stiles wrote in 
his diary under date of August 2, 17S1; "Sir Chan'g [Henry 
Chainning, a graduate of that year] returned fr. Hartford, 
the Printer there has engaged to [print] the Commencent 
Theses, Catalogues, & Qucestiones Magistrales. The Press 
in New Haven (Tho. Green) is a Tory press & unobliging to 
College. This the reason of sending abroad." The onlv 



other copy of this "Theses" which has been located is that 
in the library of Harvard University. 

From the late Mrs. Caroline T. Jones of Ithaca, N. Y., we 
have received a curious painted and embroidered picture repre- 
senting the discovery of Moses in the bulrushes. It was made 
by the donor's mother, Ruth Green, who later became the 
second wife of John Warner Barber the historian. 

A painted portrait in oval frame of our former member, the 
late Major Julius G. Rathbun, well remembered by all of the 
older residents of Hartford, was given us by Charles G. Stone 
on behalf of Mr. Rathbun' s daughter, the late Mrs. Stone. 

Francis H. Parker, chairman of our library committee has 
presented a quantity of Connecticut state departmental reports 
and documents which were new to us as separate issues, and 
some of which were not previously in our library in any form. 

From the Hartford Printing Company (Elihu Geer Sons) 
we have received one hundred thirty three volumes of directo- 
ries of different cities throughout the country. Gifts of a num- 
ber of books have been received from Arthur Adams, Benjamin 
Adams, Olin H. Clark, Charles E. Prior and the Bureau of 
Railway Economics. 

The family genealogies acquired during the year are: Bing- 
ham, Brooks, Church, Earll-Sabin Ancestry, Felt Ancestry, 
Goodwin (English records), Hillman, Ho r ton Ancestry, Innis, 
Kinsman, McCarthy, Olin, Olney, Pike (Association reports), 
Reed-Edgerton Ancestry, Rockwell and Sharpe. 

From the income of the William F. J. Boardman Fund there 
have been purchased the Kinsman Genealogy, Olney Gene- 
alogy and History of Sullivan, N. H. (2 vols.), and from 
income of the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund the History of 
Newtown, Conn., by J. E. Johnson. 

Besides the broadside of 1781 and newspapers of 1794, only 
six Connecticut imprints of the eighteenth century have been 
added to our unsurpassed collection. These are of the years 

1757. *79 8 (3), *799 (2). 

A generous gift from the Yale University Press included 
such of its publications as Jeffersouian democracy in New 
England by William A. Robinson, The Connecticut wits and 
other essays by Henry A. Beers, and Literary culture in early 
New England, 1620 to 1730, by Thomas Goddard Wright. 



A recent generous gift from our long-time member Mr. 
James Shepard of the balance of the editions of eight historical 
works and genealogical monographs issued by him will, through 
the sale of copies of them, bring a welcome addition to our 
funds for the issue of further publications by the Society. 

The accessions for the year, exclusive of manuscripts, which 
are separately listed, are by gift 471 volumes, 414 pamphlets 
and 41 miscellaneous; by purchase, including the books cred- 
ited to special funds, 94 volumes, 145 pamphlets and 38 miscel- 
laneous; by exchange two volumes, two pamphlets and one 
miscellaneous. These make a total of 565 volumes, 559 
pamphlets and 79 miscellaneous; or a grand total of 1203 
items.

from which they were received are as follows:

Copies of several narratives relating to the battle of Groton. 

The manuscripts received from Mrs. Parmele deserve more 
than a passing mention. First and most extensive among 
them is the Parmele family genealogy — descendants of John 
of Guilford — upon which Doctor Parmele had expended much 
time and labor. This is carefully compiled and indexed, and 
contains in addition to genealogy much personal data copied 
from ancient records and other sources. It is so well arranged 
that another person could readily take it up where the Doctor's 
ill health compelled him to drop the work. In addition there 
is carefully arranged genealogical data relating to many, per- 
haps fifty, other families. In some of these families the Doctor 
was personally interested, while in other cases he had been 
professionally employed by others to trace their genealogies. 
This data varies from a single page to, in the case of the 
Farrington family, more than three hundred small pages. 

Eight years ago Mrs. Susan E. Johnson Hudson of Strat- 
ford, on behalf of the Johnson family, presented to the Society 
a large and very valuable collection of Johnson family corres- 
pondence and papers, particularly those of the distinguished 
Dr. William Samuel Johnson and his well known son Samuel 
William Johnson. From the same source, through the courtesy 
of our member Prof. Max Farrand of New Haven, we have 
recently received a second, and I believe final, gift of Johnson 
manuscripts, consisting of several thousand letters of more 
recent date than the majority of those in the previous gift. 
These comprise the correspondence of later members of the 
family and are in the neighborhood of from eighty to one 
hundred and twenty years old. The gift is so extensive that 
your librarian has not yet had opportunity to make more than 
a very hurried examination of the papers. 

A most interesting Lincoln memorial has been presented to 
us by Dr. Robert M. Yergason of Hartford. It is one of the 
two United States flags which draped the front of the box in 



which President Lincoln sat at Ford's Theatre on the even- 
ing of his assassination. The flag is inscribed in gold letters 
"Presented to Treasury Guard by the Ladies of the Treasury 
Dept 1864." Accompanying this flag is a small fragment of 
the second flag, which draped the other side of the box, in 
which the assassin caught his spur as he leaped down to the 
stage, causing him to fall and fracture the bones of his leg. 
The flag and fragment are enclosed in a substantial case and 
accompanied by documents explaining how they came into 
possession of the late Mr. Edgar S. Yergason of Hartford, 
father of Doctor Yergason. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

president's Ctbbress, 



To the Me7nbers of the % Connecticut Historical Society: 

The year which has just closed (the first year of my Presi- 
dency of this Society) has been made, through the generosity 
of Mr. George E. Hoadley, the most significant year in its 
history. Last year, you will recall that the sum of $20,000 in 
railroad Bonds was given to the Society by one of its mem- 
bers, (whose name was not disclosed at the time — in fact not 
until after his death did the members of the Society generally 
learn that it was Mr. Hoadley who made this gift) to be used 
as a nucleus for a building fund. 

Mr. Hoadley died last fall, and an examination of his will 
disclosed the fact that, after making certain bequests to his 
family, he left the residue of his property to be divided equally 
between Trinity College and our Society, the portion that 
came to us to be added to the fund of which I have already 
spoken. The exact amount that we will obtain from this 
source has not yet been determined, but from the information 
w r e have, it would seem quite within the possibilities that this 
sum would be sufficient to enable us to proceed with plans for 
the erection of a building at an early date. 

The matters of building, selection of architect, and the 
question of location and of when we should commence opera- 
tions are all of great importance, and each one should receive 
the most careful consideration before a decision is reached. 
If we solve these questions wisely, the results cannot help but 
have a great bearing on the future prosperity of our Society. 
If we make serious mistakes, the affect of our general welfare 
will be grave. 

While this gift solves the very important question of a 
building, yet there is still before the Society the necessit}' of 
increasing its general funds, first, for the very necessary pur- 
pose of increasing the compensation paid to our Librarian and 
of giving him much needed Assistants. It is quite apparent 
to any of those familiar with our work that those who serve 



10 

us do so at a pitifully inadequate compensation, and that their 
chief reward must be in their sense of work well done. Sec- 
ond, to provide funds for maintenance and purchase of books. 
Our Society has gained in membership during the past year, 
as you will see from the accompanying figures. 
35 elected to membership. 
17 died, 2 of whom were Life Members, and one a 

Corresponding Member. 
We now have: 
479 active members, 34 of whom are Life Members, 

1 Honorary, 

2 Corresponding, 

• 19 Ex Officio, 2 of whom are also Active Members. 

501 

2 Actives, who are also ex officio. 

499 

The list of names of those who died is as follows: 

Lucius Albert Barbour of Hartford, admitted 1S86, 
died November 6, 1922. 

Joseph Olcott Goodwin of East Hartford, admitted 
18S7, died March 7, 1923. 

William Hamilton Champlin of Hartford, admitted 
1890, died September 29, 1922. 

Morgan Gardner Bulkeley of Hartford, Life Member, 
admitted 1894, died November 6, 1922. 

Charles Lewis Nichols Camp of New Haven, admit- 
ted 1898, died August n, 1922. 

Rev. James Gammack of West Hartford, admitted 1900, 
died February 17, 1923. 

George Edward Hoadley of West Hartford, Life 
Member, admitted 1901, died November 21, 1922. 

Mrs. Emily S. Goodwin Holcombe of Hartford, ad- 
mitted 1902, died March 28, 1923. 

Norm and Francis Allen of Hartford, admitted 1902, 
died May 30, 1922. 

Rev. Myron Andrews Munson of New Haven, admit- 
ted 1905, died October 30, 1922. 



— 11 — 

Charles Eben Jackson of Middletown, admitted in 

1892, died May 9, 1923. 
Edward W. Morley of West Hartford, admitted 1907, 

died February 24, 1923. 
Lewis Sperry of East Windsor Hill, admitted 1907, died 

June 22, 1922. 
Ella Danforth of Hartford, admitted 1907, died 

May 16, 1923. 
Mrs. Sara Thomson Kinney of Hartford, admitted 

1916, died December 14, 1922. 
Rear Admiral Harry Shepard Knapp of Hartford, 

admitted 1922, died April 16, 1923. 
Henry Phelps Johnston of New York City and Had- 

lyme, Connecticut, a Corresponding Member, admit- 
ted 18S7, died February 28, 1923. 

One lias but to pause a moment and reflect on this list of 
names to realize that it will be impossible to replace them, and 
that no increase in membership will make up to the Society 
the loss it has suffered the past year by the death of those 
whose names I have read. It is impossible to single out any 
one of them, as they have all been distinguished in their va- 
rious fields of endeavor, and have brought great credit and 
honor to the Society by reason of their membership in it. 

Our papers during the year have been as follows: 

October 3, Henry W. Erving, "Some Random Notes on 

Old Furniture." 
November 14, Charles Hopkins Clark, "Ezra Stiles, 

President of Yale." 
December 5, Rev. Remsen B. Ogilby, "The Early Trade 

Routes in the Pacific Ocean." 
January 2, Forrest Morgan, "Yarns of American 

Discovery." 
February 6, Arthur L,. Shipman, " Hartford and the 

Lincoln-Douglas debates. ' ' 
March 6, Leverett Belknap, " Main Street, Hartford, 

from Pearl to Asylum, and the, bookstore on the 

corner. ' ' 



April 3, Maynard T. Hazen, " Talk on India, illustrated." 
May i, F. Clarence Bissell, ''Some unpublished letters 
of a Connecticut Loyalist." 

These papers have been of peculiar interest and the meet- 
ings well attended as a result of the careful' work of our 
Program Committee, for which I wish to thank them in behalf 
of the Society. 

In addition to the bequest in the Hoadley will, we have 
received ^500 from the Estate of the Hon. E. Stevens Henry, 
long a Vice-President of the Society. Remembrances of this 
sort are peculiarly welcome as an evidence of the interest in 
our society by those connected with it. 

Your Officers appeared before the General Assembly during 
the present session and advocated an Amendment to our Act 
of Incorporation allowing the Society to hold property to the 
value of $750,000.00. The bill was passed and has been 
signed by the Governor, and our Incorporation Act amended 
accordingly. It was very important that this amendment be 
secured owing to the fact that the bequest from the Hoadley 
Estate would undoubtedly have brought the value of our 
property to a sum in excess of that which we w r ere allowed to 
hold by our charter before this amendment. 

The great need for additional room for books and for tem- 
porary additions at least to our shelving, which has been 
called to your attention by my predecessors, is* presented in a 
different light this year owing to the possibility that we may 
have our own building within the near future. If this is to 
be so, it seems to me we can well afford to put up for a few 
years longer with the inconveniences which we are now r suffer- 
ing in the hopes that these defects will be rectified and this 
problem solved permanently when we have our own home. 

I must urge upon the Society the necessity for a continu- 
ance of the campaign for members, as the new 7 conditions that 
have arisen will of necessity impose greater expenses upon our 
Society, and at the same time give us larger opportunity to 
expand and to display our collections in a much more satisfac- 
tory manner than we have been able to do in our present 
limited quarters. If every member would bear this in mind 
and endeavor to interest his friends in joining the Society, the 
result would be surprising to us all by its magnitude. 



In conclusion it should be kept clearly in mind that the 
successes of this year have been due to two factors, first, the 
loyal and devoted service of our Librarian and his Assistants, 
and of the committees who have had charge of the affairs of 
the Society; and secondly, to the impetus given to our activi- 
ties by my predecessor, Dr. G. C. F. Williams. It is the duty 
of those of us to whom the affairs of the Society are now 
entrusted to carry on the work on the sound, progressive 
policies that he inaugurated. 

Morgan B. Brainard, 

President. 



u 



librarian's 2\eport. 



Air. President and Members of the Society: 

The report of your librarian for the year now closing offers 
little that is unusual or startling. The work of the library 
has progressed along the accustomed lines; there have been 
some additions of especial interest, and about the usual num- 
ber of persons have sought information from its shelves. The 
amount of general work which should be done in the library 
increases steadily from year to year and cannot under present 
conditions be kept up as it should be. The cataloguing especi- 
ally falls further and further behind. With the aid of Miss 
Ellis during certain hours the regular correspondence has been 
fairly well kept up; except in the matter of genealogical en- 
quiries, which have for the most part been passed along to 
persons who make a business of research in that field. Several 
advantageous opportunities and a tendency towards lower 
prices have occasioned larger purchases during the year than 
is usual. Both your librarian and the library labor under a 
continual and increasing handicap by reason of the crowded 
condition of our rooms, a condition which must soon be 
remedied if we are to continue to serve either our own mem- 
bers or the general public. 

The twentieth volume of our series of "Collections," which 
was noted in my last report as being in press, has been com- 
pleted and a few copies have been received from the binder. 
The remainder of the edition is expected to be finished in a 
few days. This volume consists of "Huntington Papers," 
being the correspondence during the period of the Revolution 
of the brothers General Jedediah Huntington and Colonel 
Joshua Huntington, both of Norwich, Conn., with a few let- 
ters between other members of the family. In form it is a 
cloth bound octavo volume of 524 pages; and it is believed 
that the correspondence which it contains will prove of much 
interest. The usual "annual report" of the doings of the 



Society for the year ending May, 1922, was issued in July. 
It forms a pamphlet of 49 pages. 

The early papers and correspondence of the Wyllys family 
of Hartford, offered to us for publication by Lemuel A. Welles, 
Esq., as was noted in my last report, are now copied and the 
copy compared with the original documents. Mr. Welles has 
prepared a sketch of Gov. George Wyllys and some important 
explanatory notes to accompany them. As soon as further 
notes can be prepared the copy will be ready for printing; and 
it is expected that it will be placed in the printer's hands late 
in the summer, to be issued as the twenty-first volume of our 
" Collections." 

The number of readers, while somewhat less than that for 
the two previous years, owing perhaps to the severe winter is 
fully up to the average for several years past; being 2,874. 

The accessions of printed material, together with a few 
miscellaneous objects, during the year are as follows: by gift 
749 volumes, 355 pamphlets and 123 miscellaneous; by pur- 
chase, including books credited to special funds, 166 volumes, 
124 pamphlets and 33 miscellaneous; by exchange 41 volumes 
and 11 pamphlets. These make a total of 856 volumes, 490 
pamphlets and 156 miscellaneous; or a grand total of 1,502 
items. In addition to these are the manuscripts, which will 
be noted presently, also a number of accessions which can 
only be listed as lots. Among these are more than 1,650 
early bills of credit (not counting duplicates) presented by 
George E. Hoadley, a number of bills presented by Edwin P. 
Taylor and the collection of watch movements presented in 
the name of Charles Townley Martin. 

The manuscripts acquired during the year and the sources 
from which they were received are as follows: 

The Misses Beach of West Hartford and Morgan B. Brainard, of Hart- 
ford. 
Original muster, pay and receipt rolls of Connecticut militia serving 
in the War of 1S12.

Mr. Camp had been for twenty-four years a member of this 
Society, and it is believed b}^ his nearest friends that the acqui- 
sition of these his treasures by the Connecticut Historical 
Society would have met with his approval, could he have had 
any voice in the matter of their disposal. The largest and 
most important section of this manuscript library is that of 
genealogical data on individual family surnames. Following 
Mr. Camp's plan of arrangement, many of the larger families 
are separated into branches, each branch being usually desig- 
nated by the given name of the immigrant or earliest known 
settler, the place of his residence, and often a distinguishing 
letter or figure for identification. In cases where there is very 
little data on the families, a number have been placed together, 
as was done by him, and listed under the first letter or first 
two letters of the names; otherwise the arrangement is alpha- 
betical. The prospective user of this collection must not 
expect to find under each surname a full and complete gene- 
alogy of that family. It would have been impossible to do 
this with the more than 1,500 families which make up the 
collection; and such was not Mr. Camp's object or purpose 
when gathering the data. It consists rather of such material 
as he as a genealogist desired for his immediate or possible 
future use and reference. Much of the data is copied from 
printed books; but is here arranged and enlarged by the addi- 
tion of further data gathered from numerous unpublished 
records and private sources of information. The material on 
a family may be contained on a single page, or it may, as in 
the case of the Smith family with its almost forty branches, 



, 29 

cover more than 500 pages. Probably the average for a family 
is from ten to twenty-five pages, each seven by eight and one 
half inches in size. The data on about one third of the 
families is very slight, consisting of only from one to perhaps 
five pages of manuscript. Following these genealogies of 
American families of English ancestry are genealogies of 
twenty-two of Dutch ancestry accompanied by a few copies of 
Dutch records. The collection also contains carefully worked 
out ancestral pedigrees of about 350 individuals, which of 
course run back into thousands of different family names. 
Many of these are likely to prove of interest to persons seek- 
ing their ancestral lines. There are also a few original family 
records removed from old Bibles. Following these there are 
about thirty foreign genealogies and pedigrees, chiefly of royal 
and titled families and lines. The majority of these are quite 
extensive. Copies of and extracts from town, church and 
cemetery records in more than fifty towns, nearly all of them 
in Connecticut, are in the collection. Some of these records 
are quite extensive while others are short extracts only. There 
is also some miscellaneous data which cannot be described in 
general terms and a quantity of genealogical correspondence. 
The importance of this Camp collection to the Society can 
scarcely be overestimated; and the frequency with which it is 
used has already fully justified the effort made to secure it. 
A carefully prepared list of the genealogies, pedigrees and 
records which comprise this collection has been made. Such 
a list is too long to be printed here; but both list and manu- 
scripts are available for reference and study at the library. 

A similar reference list of the family pedigrees and copies 
of records comprising the Donald Lines Jacobus collection has 
been prepared. So that a knowledge of the treasures in this 
collection, relating particularly to New Haven County, is now 
more easily available. 

Through the generosity of the Misses Beach of West Hart- 
ford and Morgan B. Brainard, our president, the Society has 
acquired the original manuscript muster, pay and receipt rolls, 
about five hundred in number, of the Connecticut militia serv- 
ing in the War of 1S12. The greater part, perhaps all of the 
names which appear on these rolls have already been printed 
in the volume of "Connecticut Military Record, 1775-1848," 
issued by the state in 1SS9; where they were copied from 



the rosters in the office of the Adjutant-General at Wash- 
ington. As there printed they are arranged in one alphabeti- 
cal list, and not by companies and regiments. Whether these 
original rolls contain any names additional to those already 
in print is not now known, and can only "be ascertained by 
careful comparison of all of them with the printed roster. 
Even if they do not contain additional names, the return of 
these original manuscript rolls to Connecticut and their acqui- 
sition by this Society is a matter for congratulation. Many 
of the receipt rolls contain the autograph signatures of the 
men. Accompanying the original rolls is a volume contain- 
ing an apparently carefully made copy of them, made per- 
haps fifty to seventy-five years ago, to which an index of the 
names has been added. 

Miss Caroline M. Hewins, librarian of the Hartford Public 
Library, has presented to the Society the large collection of 
"annuals" and similar gift books which she has gathered 
during many years of collecting. They number above -2.50 
volumes besides a few duplicates, and include several sets 
published for a number of years. While the majority of them 
are American, some of them are English publications. The 
vogue of the annual has passed; but the books are to-day of 
much interest and some of them are not without commercial 
value. The period covered by them began about a century 
ago and ended not far from i860. The earliest in this col- 
lection is of 1S27, and the latest 1859. Among their contents 
may be found the first appearance of the earlier writings of 
many famous authors, numerous poems by the favorite writers 
of the day and choice bits of literature by authors whose 
names are now rarely heard. Most of the issues are embel- 
lished with the choicest examples of engravings by the fore- 
most artists of the time. The bindings, also, are finished 
examples of the taste of the time, with the covers usually 
embossed either "blind" or in gilt with designs of flowers 
or arabesques. As a whole these books represented the best 
in both the literature and art of their period. Not a few of 
these volumes were edited by Hartford residents or published 
in Hartford; while many contain poems or prose sketches by 
Connecticut authors. 

Our late member and most generous friend of the Society, 
Mr. George E. Hoadley, presented us not long before his 



death with the volumes, some 375 iu all, which comprised the 
remainder of the editions of the two volumes of Records of 
the Colony of New Haven and the Records of the Colony of 
Connecticut, volumes four to fifteen, both edited by his dis- 
tinguished brother, the late Charles J. Hoadly, LL. D. Pro- 
ceeds from the sale of these volumes will be added, respec- 
tively, to the building fund established by Mr. Hoadley and 
to the Charles J. Hoadly fund, also established by him in 
memory of his brother. To this latter fund will also be 
added the proceeds from the sale of copies of the Records of 
the State of Connecticut, volume three, the publication of 
which by Mr. Hoadley was noted in my last report, and which 
he later presented to the Society. 

Mr. Hoadley also presented us with a wonderfully complete 
and choice collection of early American colonial, continental 
and state bills, together with Confederate and miscellaneous 
bills of more recent date, as follows: 

Continental bills, 1775-1780, including (23) state bills, (2) lottery tick- 
ets, (5) bills of exchange, etc. (185). 

Connecticut bills, 1709-1792, including (2) reprints, (14) notes, (53) 
treasury and pay-table notes (246). 

Delaware bills, 1746-1777 (47). 

Georgia bills, 1749-17S6 (45). 

Maryland bills, about 1 767-1 780 (71). 

Massachusetts bills, 1690-17S6, including one reproduction, one 
printed on leather and (12) notes (73). 

New Hampshire bills, 1737-1780, including (22) probable reprints (38). 

New Jersey bills, 1756-17S6 (89). 

New York bills, 1709-1776, including one facsimile (47). 

North Carolina bills, 1748-1780 (50). 

Pennsylvania bills, 1755-1789 (190). 

Rhode Island bills, 1715-1786. including (4) reprints (46). 

South Carolina bills, 1 735-1 784 (50). 

Vermont bills, 17S1 (4). 

Confederate States bills (128). 

Confederate States bonds and loan certificates (22). 

Confederate state bills; (15) Alabama, (2) Florida, (27) Georgia, (3) 
Louisiana, (17) North Carolina, (6) Virginia (70). 

Miscellaneous bills of cities, corporations, etc. (119). 

Assiguats of the first French republic (18). 

Bills of other foreign countries (15). 

A considerable number of duplicate Continental and Connecticut 
bills, with a few of other states. 

Miss Lucy A. Brainard, the first lady to be admitted to our 
membership, appreciating the need of the Society for more 



funds for the purchase of books, established the book fund 
which now bears her name by a modest and at the time anony- 
mous gift in 1892. Later on several occasions she increased 
the fund by cash gifts, and only a few days previous to her 
death she presented the Society with a number of sets of her 
recently issued three volume Genealogy of the Brainerd- 
Brainard Family, with the condition that the proceeds from 
the sale of these books should be added to the principal of 
the fund. During the past year her nephews, Morgan B. 
Brainard and Hon. Newton C. Brainard, have presented us, 
under the same condition, with the remaining unsold copies 
of the genealogy, several hundred volumes in all. This 
splendid gift will eventually greatly increase the ''Lucy A. 
Brainard Book Fund," which has already grown from its 
original one hundred to above thirteen hundred dollars. 

The following family genealogies have been added to the 
library during the year: Atwater, Bailey, Barbour, Bell. Ben- 
son, Bowler, Brown, Burton-Robinson, Burwell, Carpenter, 
Chipman, Christopher, Clemens, Dayton, Dimock, EHery, 
Emmerton, Fowler, Frye, Gedney-Clark, Gladding, Gove, 
Griswold- Crane -Russell, Grout, Hewes, Kingman, Kinne, 
Lines, North, Parlin, Pearson, Pettingill, Presbrey, Reynolds, 
Robins, Ryder, Shed, Smith (2), Spencer, Stimpson, Stowell, 
Thurston, Tingley, Woodbury. 

A weekly newspaper named the ' ' Connecticut Centinel ' ' 
was published in Norwich during the years 1802 to 1807. 
Copies of this paper appear to be rare, and only eight issues 
later than July, 1804, were known to exist. This Society 
has recently acquired 67 issues dated from Jan. 1, 1805, to 
Oct. 27, 1807. Another series of newspapers, issued in Mid- 
dletown, has been acquired, as follows: "The Oasis," vols. 
1-3, 1850-1852; "The Rainbow," vols. 4-7, 1853-1855, and 
scattering numbers of vols. 8-1 1; "The Middlesex County 
Democrat," scattering numbers of vol. 1, 1S60; "The Mid- 
dletown Democrat," scattering numbers of vol. 11, 1S61. 

With income from the Charles J. Hoadly fund we have pur- 
chased the Life of Jonathan Trumbull written by his great- 
grandson of the same name; The Friendly Club, a series of 
delightfully written essays by Col. Francis Parsons; History 
of Westfield, Mass., in two volumes, by J. H. Lockwood, and 
Rev. John Davenport's Knowledge of Christ, London, 1653, 



slightly imperfect. The Gove and Shed genealogies were 
purchased with the income from the William F. J. Boardman 
fund. With income from the Dr. Gurdon W. Russell book 
fund a subscription was entered for the New Haven Gene- 
alogical Magazine, published by Donald Lines Jacobus. The 
first three numbers, containing families of ancient New Haven 
from Abbot to Benham have been received. 

Among other publications of Connecticut interest which 
have been added to the library are Observations on remarks 
on Dr. Gales' letter by Eliphalet Dyer, Hartford, [1769], 
issued anonymously by Benjamin Gale; the Orderly book of 
Lieut. Abraham Chittenden, Aug. 16 to Sept. 29, 1776, pub- 
lished by Hon. Newton C. Brainard; a revised edition of E. B. 
Sanford's History of Connecticut; Charles R. Stark's History 
of Groton; Judd's Almanacks for 17S6 and 178-S, printed in 
Litchfield, the earlier of the two being, so far as can be ascer- 
tained, an unique copy. Other books of interest include 
Beaumarchafs and the war of American independence, in two 
volumes,, presented by the author, Elizabeth S. Kite; Publi- 
cations of the Florida Historical Society, volume I, a beau- 
tiful specimen of printing; Loubat's Medallic history of the 
United States in two volumes, presented by Columbia Univer- 
sity; Broadsides, ballads, etc., printed in Massachusetts, 1639- 
1800, a most interesting piece of bibliography, compiled by 
W T orthington C. Ford and published and presented by the 
Massachusetts Historical Society; seven volumes of the pub- 
lications of the Naval History Society. 

From Mrs. Benjamin Knower of New York and Hartford 
we received a handsome portrait of the famous Indian chief 
Red Jacket, painted by William J. Wilgus (18 19-1853) of 
Buffalo, N. Y. Mr. W. J. Wilgus of New York, nephew and 
namesake of the artist, became interested in this picture and 
had it cleaned and varnished. He, however, is convinced that 
it is not a portrait of Red Jacket, but of the Onondaga chief 
Captain Cole. 

The Hartford Printing Company (Elihu Geer Sons) have 
made their annual donation of directories of different cities, 
134 volumes this year. These old directories are frequently 
consulted and constitute a valuable section of the library. 

From Miss Mary E. Hastings of Hartford, great-great- 
grandaughter of John Lawrence, long the treasurer of the 



Colony and State of Connecticut, we have received a number 
of interesting and historical articles, in addition to the manu- 
scripts noted elsewhere in this report. Among these is a small 
rectangular seventeenth century table with curved diagonal 
stretchers and one drawer that belonged to the Chenevard 
family; a small round topped stand, with three feet, that be- 
longed to Treasurer Lawrence; an arm chair with five trian- 
gular spindles in the back and embossed Spanish leather seat 
that belonged in the Lawrence family, probably to William 
the son of Treasurer John; other articles include a small iron 
skillet and two Canton china plates with red, blue and gilt 
flower decorations that belonged to Treasurer Law r rence and a 
blue figured fireplace tile from his house; also "Hector's 
Tomb," an embroidered piece wrought by Sarah Lawrence, 
several pieces of hand woven linen, and a pencil sketch of 
William Lawrence by T. H. W r entworth. 

Carrying out the expressed washes of our former life mem- 
ber, the late Charles Townley Martin of Hartford, Mrsf Martin 
has recently presented us in his name with the collection of 
watches, or rather watch movements, for only a few of them 
have cases, which were gathered by Mr. Martin and in which 
he took great interest. This collection affords excellent oppor- 
tunity for the study of watches and the numerous varieties 
and forms used in their manufacture by different watchmakers 
and at different times. The more than three hundred speci- 
mens of which it consists include examples made in different 
sections of the British Isles and in Switzerland and other 
countries of continental Europe; also examples of the work of 
American watchmakers. The last two centuries is the period 
covered by the watches in the collection. "The whole collec- 
tion has been listed or catalogued in Mr. Martin's careful, 
methodical and pains-taking manner. 

From the same source was received a collection of pamph- 
lets, broadsides, circulars, leaflets and clippings, with a few 
manuscripts and letters, relating to the endeavor of American 
claimants, about forty years ago, to prove title to a Lawrence- 
Chase-Townley estate in England, through a supposed de- 
scendant who had formerly lived in Canterbury, Conn. 

As your librarian looks back upon his thirty-four years of 
membership in and thirty-one years of work for this Society 
he is forcibly reminded of the changes that time brings. 



There are now only twelve who have been members of the 
Society as long or longer than himself. Members and readers 
alike come to our rooms for a time; at first they are full of 
enthusiasm, soon their steps lag somewhat, then they cease 
to come and pass into history. Their books, manuscripts or 
other collections pass into other and often unappreciative 
hands and are too frequently scattered or destroyed. Why 
do they not arrange while yet they may to have their col- 
lections, which often are the joy of their lives, pass into the 
custody of an institution such as this Society, where they will 
be permanently preserved and will also be a lasting memorial 
to their gatherer and donor. 

Respectfully submitted , 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

president's Clbbress, 



To the Members of the Connecticut Historical Society: 

My report of last year made mention of the gift to this 
Society by the will of our late deceased life member George 
Edward Hoadley of one half of his residuary estate, for the 
purpose of erecting a- fire-proof building for the Society. x\t 
that time.it was known only that this would be a considerable 
sum; but the amount was unknown. The settlement of the 
estate revealed that the sum was larger than had been antici- 
pated. A distribution of the estate was made on December 
nineteenth and there was set off to the Society securities and 
cash valued at $252,784.73. In addition the Society received 
a number of historical pamphlets and a quantity of manu- 
scripts and autograph letters which had been appraised at 
$5,021.00. A statement in some detail regarding these manu- 
scripts will appear in the report of the Librarian. 

This munificent bequest from Mr. Hoadley with nearly 
$20,000.00 which he had given the Society for the same 
purpose previous to his death, together with the accumula- 
tions of income on the fund, will, it is hoped, enable the 
Society to proceed with the erection of a building as soon as 
arrangements and plans for the work can be made. Such an 
undertaking as this requires the most careful consideration, 
that mistakes may be avoided both in the location and the 
planning of the building. A committee has been appointed 
"to consider the problem of a suitable building to be erected 
from the proceeds of the Hoadley Fund"; but as yet suffi- 
cient study has not been given to the problem to warrant a 
report from that committee. That a building is very much 
needed is known to all who are familiar with the Society, 
while others need only to view the crowded condition of our 
rooms to assure themselves of such need. 

Under the will of Dr. William Ward Knight of Hartford, 
a member of the Society for twenty -nine years, whose death 
occurred last December, the Society receives a legacy of 



$7»ooo-o°- This legacy is, however, subject to a life use, 
and is not expected to become available to the Society for 
a considerable number of years. 

It is to be hoped that in the near future others will re- 
member the Society either by direct gift or by inclusion in 
their wills, as with the occupancy of a new building and 
larger quarters, the general expenses of administration will 
be enormously increased. 

It is a matter on which the Society is to be congratulated 
that we have received as a gift from one of our officers, 
Gen. Lucius B. Barbour, of Hartford, all of the remaining 
unsold copies of that valuable work, Manwarings abstracts of 
the Probate Records of Hartford District from 1635 to 1750. 

It is to be regretted that there have been delays in printing 
the volume of our Collections which is to contain the Wyllys 
family papers, so that it is not yet published. Meanwhile 
other copy has been prepared, so that it is hoped the publi- 
cation of a volume to be paid for from our Ancient .-Vital 
Records Fund may soon be undertaken. 

At our monthly meetings during the year the following 
interesting papers have been read: 

Robert J. Burdette and his contemporaries; a builder's esti- 
mate, by Hon. Charles C. Cook, at the October 
meeting. 

Racial distribution of the settlers of the colonies before the 
Revolutionary War, by Professor William B. Bailey, at 
the November meeting. 

French traits, by Professor Henry A. Perkins, at the De- 
cember meeting. 

Shakespeare personally, by Dr. Allan D. Risteen, at the Janu- 
ary meeting. 

Some notes on wampum, by Edwin Stanley Welles, at the 
February meeting. 

The early history of Pemaquid, by Lewis W. Allen, at the 
March meeting. 

Egypt, by Clifton L. Sherman, at the April meeting. 

Some first editions of American authors, by Dr. George C. 
F. Williams, at the May meeting. This paper was 
illustrated by the exhibition of numerous examples of 
rare first editions from Dr. Williams' own library.

loss of the following: 

Rev. Francis Goodwin of Hartford, admitted December 
1876, died October 5, 1923. 

Forrest Morgan of Hartford, admitted May 1886, died

1920 became also an active member, died May 10, 1924.

a member of the Society's Library Committee, died

Oliver A. Hiscox of Woodstock Valley, admitted May 
1917, died May 24, 1924. 

Walter Stanley Schutz of Hartford, admitted February

died in December 1923. 

Mrs. Sarah Francis Dorrence of Plainfield, admitted 
February 5, met a tragic death at a railroad crossing 
March 14, 1924. 

Forty-four new members have been elected during the year 
and three have been added to the ex-officio list. There have 
been 20 deaths, including three life members and two ex- 
officio members. Four members have resigned, and the names 
of a few have been dropped from the roll. The present mem- 
bership consists of 498 active, of whom 31 are members for 
life, 20 ex-officio, one of whom is also an active member, one 
honorary and two corresponding; a total membership of 520, 
the largest in the history of the Society. 

One year from this month marks the centennial of the 
organization of this Society in May 1825. While there have 
been some handicaps in its work and some periods when its 
activities have been much curtailed, its career as a whole has 
been one that is worthy of the state which it represents. 
Does it not seem that some special note of this centennial 
should be made, perhaps by a public meeting at which repre- 
sentatives of other similar societies might join with us in a 
recognition .of the event, or by an address outlining the his- 
tory* growth and activities of the Society during its first cen- 
tury with a hopeful glimpse into its second century ? 

The report up to this point has been prepared for me by 
the librarian, at my request. No report would be complete, 
however, without a mention by the President of the debt 
owed by the Society to Mr. Bates for the devoted service he 
has given to it. It is not too much to state that the position 
which our library holds is, in my judgment, due as much to 
the knowledge and learning of our librarian as it is to the 
books which it contains. 



It is, of course, known to all of you that the funds of the 
Society have never permitted an adequate compensation to be 
paid to those who have served it so faithfully and efficiently, 
and it is by calling this situation to your attention each year 
that I hope that some day our funds will be sufficiently en- 
larged to enable us to feel that those who are in our employ 
do not remain so at a considerable personal sacrifice. 

At this time I wish to call the attention of our members 
to the resignation of John Felt Morris, members of whose 
family have -been treasurers of this Society for the past forty- 
nine years, including Mr. Morris' own term. Such records 
as this remind us that this loyal spirit which has led one 
family to give us so freely of their time and thought for so 
long a period is one of the fundamental reasons for the posi- 
tion now held by the Society. 

I would repeat what I have said in the earlier part of this 
report with regard to the problem that confronts the Society 
ill connection with its new building. The sum that Mr. 
Hoadley left us is a handsome one, and yet, unless it is 
handled with the greatest care, it w 7 ill not provide adequately 
for future growth combined with the beauty of structure that 
should perpetuate a gift of this character. One cannot, of 
course, forecast the future with any feeling of confidence, 
but my own judgment is that this problem of construction is 
not one that will have to be solved by your officers during 
their present term of office. 

In closing let me express the hope that my associate officers 
and the committees of the Society will work as earnestly and 
as efficiently this coming year as they have the past, so that 
at its close we may review it in our minds and feel that the 
Society has progressed during our term of office. 

Morgan B. Brainard, 

President.

librarian's Report. 



Mr. Preside n t and % Members of the Society: 

The year now closing has been, in one way at least, the 
most important since the organization and incorporation of 
the Society. For during this year we have received from 
the estate of our former life member, Mr. George E. Hoadley, 
the bequest made by him to the Society for the purpose of 
erecting a fireproof building. With the erection of a com- 
modious building to house our library and miscellaneous col- 
lections, and with some further increase of our funds for 
general expenses of maintenance, our books can be better 
arranged and made more accessible than they now are, many 
can be placed on the shelves which are now packed away 
where they cannot be consulted, our historical and genealogi- 
cal manuscripts can be better arranged and cared for and our 
paintings and various historical relics can be displayed to 
better advantage. Provision will doubtless also be made for 
the display of collections of the stone implements and other 
relics of our local Indians. The possibilities for increased 
work, for greater usefulness and for a wider field of activi- 
ties by the Society appear very great, when once the handi- 
cap of cramped quarters shall have been removed. 

The total number of readers for the year is 3,304, exceed- 
ing the number for the last year by fifteen per cent. 

The number of accessions, other than manuscripts, during 
the year is thirty-three per cent, greater than last year. Of 
these the number received by gift is eight per cent, above 
last year; the total of volumes being less and of pamphlets 
and miscellaneous items more than last year. The purchases, 
due to some unusual opportunities that have occurred, are 
more than double those of last year and include items of 
more than ordinary interest. A detailed account of the acces- 
sions is as follows: by gift, 423 volumes, 537 pamphlets and 
361 miscellaneous; by purchase, including 21 volumes and 
one pamphlet credited to special funds, 332 volumes, 244 



pamphlets and 132 miscellaneous; by exchange, two volumes, 
23 pamphlets and one miscellaneous. These make a total of 
759 volumes, S04 pamphlets and 494 miscellaneous; or a 
grand total of 2,055 items. 

The Society's unrivalled collection of eighteenth century 
Connecticut imprints, in which your librarian takes much 
interest, has been increased during the year by the addition 
of 18 books and pamphlets printed in 1782, '84, '86, '89, '91, 
'92, '93. '94 (2), '95 (2), '96 (2), '97 (4), '99; and four 
broadsides of 1776, '91 (2), '92. 

Genealogies of the following families have been added to 
the library during the year: Allis, Avars (2), Bancroft, Beach, 
Bicknell, Boardman, Brondson & Box, Bulkeley (to replace 
a copy stolen some years ago), Burritt, Cary (2), Davis, 
Denison, Dixon, Dolbeare, Fairfax, Fulton-Hayden- Warner, 
Gage, Geer, Grant Association, Gregg, Griffing, Hakes, 
Harris, Hendrick, Herkimer & Schuyler, Hill, Holcomb, 
Johnson, Kasson, Kelley, Lincoln, Lippincott (2), Loomis, 
Lunt, Lyman-Clapp, MacLean, Magoun, Meech, Mott, 
Nelson, Newcomb, Nichols, Northrup, Olmsted, Parker- 
Ruggles, Prouty, Rascob Green, Rich, Richardson, Richelieu, 
Sage & Slocum, Sanders, Sebor, Sherman, Spear, Spicer, 
Sprague, Stafford, Stokes, Strassberger, Stratton, Swan-Far- 
well, Townshend, Tracy, Travers, Webb, Whiting. 

Undoubtedly the printed item of the greatest historical in- 
terest acquired during the year is the broadside proclamation 
issued by Gov. Jonathan Trumbull June 18, 1776, which is 
usually spoken of as Connecticut's Declaration of Independ- 
ence; but which at the time of its adoption by the General 
Assembly was designated as a "Proclamation for Reforma- 
tion, &c." This proclamation, which is one of less than 
half a dozen known copies, was presented by our president 
Morgan B. Brainard and had belonged to our former vice- 
president James Terry. A handsome gift received from Wal- 
lace Nutting is a copy of his book, "Connecticut Beautiful," 
which he dedicated to the Society. From Mr. Hoadley's 
estate we secured the unique copy of the first printing of 
Rev. and Dr. Gershom Bulkeley's history of the Colony en- 
titled "Will and Doom, Or the Miseries of Connecticut by 
and under an Usurped and Arbitrary Power," written in 1692 



but not printed until 1875, when it was to form a part of the 
third volume of the Collections of this Society. Before it 
was issued the whole edition of the Will and Doom with the 
exception of this copy was destroyed by fire. The volume 
was finally issued by this Society twenty years later, and 
accompanying this unique copy is one of the twenty-five 
separately printed copies of the 1895 edition. Other books 
of interest include the Logs of the Serapis, Alliance and 
Ariel under John Paul Jones, completing our set of the pub- 
lications of the Naval History Society; two volumes of the 
Victoria History of the Counties of England, the gift of our 
late vice-president James J. Goodwin; Pirates of the New 
England coast by Dow and Edmonds; a number of Charles- 
ton, S. C, Year books; four bound volumes of pamphlets 
giving centennials of New Hampshire towns; four large scrap 
books relating to Wethersfield, arranged by our late member 
Wi-lliam F. J. Boardman; the Westmoreland probate records, 
printed by the Wyoming Historical and Geological Society; 
Journal of a tour to and residence in New Connecticut in 
1820 and 182 1 by Dr. Zerah Haw-ley of Farmington; Church 
records of Plymouth, Mass., vol. 2; Letters of members of the 
Continental Congress, vol. 2, July, 1776, to December, 1777, 
which includes copies from original letters in the Society's 
possession; Pennsylvania Act of 1799 against Connecticut 
claimants; catalogue of New England diaries from 1602 to 
to 1800; the Memorial of Pedro Menendez de Aviles, Gov- 
ernor of Florida, issued by the Florida State Historical 
Society, a volume which delighted our late member Forrest 
Morgan; Records of the Colony of New Plymouth, 12 vols.; 
Acts and Resolves of Massachusetts Bay, 8 vols. ; reprints of

It is a pleasure to note the publication of the second and 
final volume of New Haven Vital Records; also of a small 
but useful Tourists guide to Connecticut, issued by the Mat- 
tatuck Historical Society. The first volume of Families of 
Ancient New Haven (New Haven Genealogical Magazine) 
by Donald Lines Jacobus has been completed and two of the 
four numbers of volume two issued. 

An item of much historical interest is the discovery and 
announcement by our member Luke Vincent Lockwood that 
Nicholas Desbrowe of Hartford was the maker of the so-called 
" Connecticut chests," now so highly prized by collectors of 
early New England furniture. 

The annual donation of directories of different towns and 
cities by the Hartford Printing Company (Elihu Geer Sons) 
was larger this year than usual, amounting to almost 200 
volumes. Not until the new building is erected and occu- 
pied can a proper arrangement and shelving of our extensive 
directory library be made. 

The manuscripts acquired during the year and the sources 
from which they were received are as follows:

The two early manuscripts presented by President Brainard 
are of unusual interest. The address of Connecticut to King 
George III is in the handwriting of and signed by "Thomas 
Fitch, governor," and is one of condolence with the new king 
upon the death of his illustrious grandfather, the former king, 
and of congratulation upon his own accession to the throne. 
Curiously enough neither the records of the Colony of Con- 
necticut nor the official correspondence which passed between 
the Colony and England make any mention of this address, 
and the document itself, which has only recently come to light, 
is the only evidence that such an address was prepared and 
sent. The second document, which bears the signature of 
"George R." Ill, is an instruction to the Governor and 
Company of Connecticut declaring and directing the neces- 
sary changes in the prayers, litanies and collects for the royal 
family, due to the death of George II and the accession of 
George III. Such an official document addressed to Con- 
necticut and bearing the royal sign manual is of the utmost 
rarity. This manuscript is accompanied by the printed order 
or proclamation of His Majesty in Council authorizing these 
changes. 

The History of the New Cambridge (Bristol) Episcopal 
Church written by our member James Shepard, the manu- 
script of which he has recently presented to us, represents 
many months of work and it lias been his earnest hope to see 
the work in print; but in this he has up to the present time 
been disappointed, although it is ready for the press. 

Under the will of our generous patron Mr. George E. 
Hoadley the Society has received his historical pamphlets 



and his collection of autographs and historical manuscripts. 
Among the pamphlets may be mentioned a number of eulogies 
on George Washington; the Columbian tragedy, Hartford, 
1 791, giving an account of the defeat of General Butler by the 
Indians; Remarks on the letter addressed to two great men, 
Boston, about 1760; Bishop Seabury's Communion office, New 
London, 17S6, unfortunately imperfect; American cookery by 
A. Simmons, Hartford, 1796, a rare publication upon the sub- 
ject; Short account of the experience of Jonathan Edwards, 
Boston, 1745; Joel Barlow's Advice to the privileged orders, 
the first edition of both parts; Present state of North America, 
Boston, 1755; Considerations on the propriety of imposing 
taxes in the British colonies, New York, 1765; Candid exam- 
ination of Dr. Mayhew's observations, Boston, 1763; Twenty- 
six letters respecting the Revolution by John Adams, New 
York, 1789; Taxation no tyranny, London, 1775. There 
were also a number of the little publications issued by the 
"Hartford wits," so-called: The Stand, The Candle, The 
Extinguisher, The Round Table, The Square Table, The 
Retort, The Parterre, The Magpie. 

The historical manuscripts have already been listed. The 
autograph collection is extensive and contains many items 
worthy of special note; but at this time only a selection of 
the more important items can be mentioned. The arrange- 
ment, with the exception of the Sigourney collection, is that 
which had been made by Mr. Hoadley. 

The collection of autographs of the Presidents is complete 
and in addition to those noted elsewhere, contains autograph 
letters from Presidents and Vice-Presidents James Monroe, 
Aaron Burr, John Q. Adams, Daniel D. Tompkins, Andrew 
Jackson, Richard M. Johnson, William H. Harrison, George 
M. Dallas, John Tyler, William R. King, James Buchanan, 
John C. Breckinridge, Ulysses S. Grant, Hannibal Hamlin, 
Rutherford B. Hayes, Schuyler Colfax, James A. Garfield 
and Grover Cleveland. 

Autograph letters of members of the cabinet include Caleb 
dishing, Reverdy Johnson, Caesar A. Rodney, Gideon Gran- 
ger, Return J. Meigs, John M. Niles, B. W. Crowninshield, 
William Faxon, Henry Clay, William L. Marcy, William H. 
Seward, Charles Sumner, Daniel Webster, Alexander Hamil- 



ton, Levi Woodbury, George Bancroft, Jefferson Davis, Henry 
Dearborn, J. R. Poinsett, William Wilkins. 

There are autograph letters from Judges Oliver Ellsworth, 
John Marshall, Charles Chauncey, Rufus Choate, Stephen 
Mix Mitchell and Truman Smith. 

Signers of the Declaration include autograph letters of 
Samuel Huntington, Roger Sherman, William Williams, 
Oliver Wolcott, Francis Hopkinson, John Hancock, and 
Carter Braxton, besides short notes by, documents signed 
by or autographs of a number of others. 

The Revolutionary War collection includes autograph let- 
ters of Zebulon Butler, John Douglas, Ebenezer Huntington, 
Marquis de Lafayette, Daniel Putman, Gold Selleck Silliman, 
Benjamin Talmadge, Joseph Trumbull, James A. Varnum, 
Jeremiah Wadsworth, James Wilkinson, David Wooster, and 
autographs, most of them attached to letters or documents, 
of Benedict Arnold, Lord Cornwallis, Eliphalet Dyer, Jedediah 
Elderkin, Israel Putnam and General William Tryon. 

The collection of autographs of Governors of Connecticut 
lacks only eleven of being complete, and of these nine are 
previous to 1750. While many of these are autograph letters, 
not a few are signed documents. The collections of Lieu- 
tenant-Governors and Secretaries of Connecticut are less com- 
plete; but contain a number of well-known names. Auto- 
graphs of only three Mayors of Hartford are needed to com- 
plete the collection. 

Naval officers include autograph letters from S. Barron, 
J. A. Dahlgreeu, David G. Farragut, L. M. Goldsborough, 
John Paul Jones, Oliver H. Perry, John Rogers and Charles 
Stewart; with letters signed by Esek Hopkins, Isaac Hull 
and David Porter; also the proceedings of a court martial in 
May, 1776, signed by a dozen officers including John Paul 
Jones and Dudley Saltonstall. 

The English poets and authors include Lord Byron, Robert 
Southey and Alfred Tennyson. Among the female writers 
are Rose Terry Cooke and Harriet Beecher Stowe. The 
poets and authors are numerous and include Louis Agassiz, 
John J. Audobon, George Bancroft, Joel Barlow, John G. C. 
Brainard, George W. Cable, Fenimore Cooper, Theodore 
Dwight, Samuel G. Goodrich, Fitz-Greene Halleck,- Oliver 



Wendell Holmes, Lemuel Hopkins, Henry W. Longfellow, 
James Russell Lowell, Jedediah Morse, Benjamin Trumbull, 
John G. Whittier. Another extensive collection is the men 
of note, which includes Jeffrey Amherst, Phineas T. Barnum, 
Thomas H. Benton, John Brown, Elihu Burritt, Samuel Colt, 
Earl of Devon, Eliphalet Dyer, David Dudley Field, Ulysses 
S. Grant, Horace Greeley, Joseph R. Hawley, Patrick Henry, 
John Ledyard, Phineas Lyman, Hollis, Duke of Newcastle, 
William Pitt, Jesse Root, Zephaniah Swift. 

The Sigourney collection, which had been in part divided 
among other collections, has been regathered. It shows that 
Mrs. Sigourney carried on an extensive correspondence and 
contains autograph letters from Washington All-stem-, Cath- 
arine E. Beecher, Countess of Blessington, Fredrika Bremer, 
William Cullen Bryant, Silas Burroughs, Charles Carroll of 
Carrollton, Lewis Cass, Philander Chase, George Washington 
Park Custis, Duke of Devonshire; Charles Dickens, written 
from the City Hotel, Hartford, Maria Edgeworth, Edward 
Everett, Millard Fillmore, Charles Goodrich, Anne Grant, 
Horace Greeley, Sarah J. Hale, Sam Houston, Mary A. 
Jameson, Samuel F. Jarvis, Adoniram Judsou, Mary Custis 
Lee, Elizabeth Leslie, Jane E. Locke, Thomas B. Macaulay, 
George B. McClellan, Dolly P. Madison, Harriet Martineau, 
Mary Russell Mitford, Caroline F. Orne, Robert Dale Owen, 
Edgar Allen Poe, William H. Prescott, T. Buchanan Read, 
Catherine M. Sedgwick, Ann S. Stephens, Grant Thorburn, 
Ithiel Town, John Trumbull the artist, John Trumbull the 
poet, Martin Van Buren, George Washington (presented to 
Mrs. Sigourney), John G. Whittier; Emma Willard, Martha 
Custis Williams and Nathaniel P. Willis. 

The Civil War collection has not yet been listed; but it con- 
tains letters from many officers who took prominent parts in 
the conflict and numerous autographs of those who were less 
prominent. 

A portrait of Capt. Lemuel White has been presented to us 
by his grand-daughter Mary Elizabeth White of Dorchester, 
Mass. Captain White was born in East Hartford, Nov. i, 
1762. He was a sea captain, in the China trade, and after- 
wards a merchant in East Hartford, where he was post-master 
and a justice of the peace. He was appointed a member of 



numerous state commissions. His death occurred Dec. 8, 
1843. The portrait is signed " Foeigua Pinx," and was prob- 
ably painted abroad. 

Miss Mary E. Hastings of Hartford, whose gift of choice 
old furniture and other articles was noted in my last report, 
has made another valuable donation to the Society. This is 
a handsome case filled with memorials of the Lawrence family, 
her ancestors. Among these are a silver spoon that belonged 
to John and Marian (Beauchamp) Lawrence, parents of Treasu- 
rer John; silver shoe and knee buckles and a pair of Sheffield 
candlesticks of Treasurer John Lawrence; silver porringer of 
his wife Margaret (Chenevard) made by John Edwards (1670- 
1746) of Boston; portrait (from a painting) of Alice Adams, 
the fiance of Capt. Nathan Hale, and a small silver spoon that 
belonged to her, also a small metal eagle supposed to have 
been worn by Hale on his cap. There are numerous other 
articles, as spoons and forks, rings, pins, bracelets, ke} r s, seals 
and other family memorials too numerous to be individually 
mentioned here. 

Mrs. Wright Poindexter of West Hartford, a descendant of 
Gov. Joseph Talcott, has placed with the Society an interest- 
ing collection of Talcott family silver consisting of a porringer 
made by J. Lent of New York and marked with the initials 
of Matthew, sou of Gov. Joseph; a small creamer made by E. 
White; a salt shaker made by Jacob Hurd of Boston; a pair 
of shoe buckles; three table spoons marked with the initials 
of Matthew and his wife Mary; six small spoons marked with 
the initials of Matthew, all of which formerly belonged to 
Gov. Joseph Talcott; also eight tablespoons, twelve teaspoons 
and two small spoons marked A L for Abigail Ledyard, the 
wife of Samuel Talcott, a grandson of Gov. Joseph; a table- 
spoon marked S H M, said to have belonged to the Mott 
family. This silver was all exhibited in one of our cases, and 
later the more important pieces were loaned for a time to the 
Wadsworth Atheneum for exhibition. Miss Ellen Earle Flagg 
has also placed with us for exhibition a silver tankard made 
by John Burt of Boston probably about 1740, for Hannah the 
wife of Dr. Jonathan Bull of Hartford, and a sister of General 
David Wooster. It is one of three which Abraham Wooster 
caused to be made and presented to his daughters at the time 
of their marriage. 



On the occasion of the paper on Wampum read by Mr. 
Welles at our February meeting, a rather notable exhibit of 
this rare article was arranged in one of our cases. A part of 
it was the property of the Society and the remainder was 
loaned by one of our members. 

Nearly twenty years ago our late member Charles W. Man- 
waring issued his monumental work giving A Digest of the 
Early Connecticut Probate Records: Hartford District, 1635- 
1750. The printing of these three volumes was made possi- 
ble by the cooperation of three other members of the Society, 
Gen. Lucius A. Barbour, Miles W. Graves and Samuel E. 
Elmore, all of whom are now deceased. The remaining unsold 
copies of the work came into the possession of Gen. Lucius 
B. Barbour, a member of the Society and son of the former 
Gen. Barbour, who has most generously presented them to 
the Society. While the active demand has been filled during 
the twenty years since the first volume was issued, there is 
still a slow and steady sale of the work, which in time ~wilr 
add a considerable sum to the Society's funds. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

ARTICLE I. MEMBERS. 

Section i. The Society shall consist of active, corresponding, and 
honorary members. Only active members shall be entitled to vote in 
any meeting of the Society. 

Corresponding and honorary members shall be persons residing out 
of the State of Connecticut, and shall not be subject to any admission 
fee or diies. 

Honorary members shall be persons who may have rendered important 
public service to the State of Connecticut, or to the cause of historic 
inquiry, or literature generally. 

Section 2. Every application for active membership shall be in 
writing, signed by the applicant, shall be supported by the written 
recommendation of at least one active member residing in the State of 
Connecticut, and shall be accompanied by the admission fee of three 
dollars. Such applications must be made upon blank forms furnished 
by the Society and shall contain a brief personal sketch of the 
applicant. 

Every nomination for the election of corresponding or honorary 
members shall be based upon the application, in writing, of at least two 
active members, residing in the State of Connecticut, stating the reason 
for such nomination, and the qualifications of the persons proposed for 
membership. 

Section 3. No person shall be voted for as an active, corresponding, 
or honorary member until at least the meeting next succeeding the one 
at which his election is recommended by the Committee on Membership. 

Whenever a vote shall be taken on the admission of a member and 
there shall be found two ballots against his admission, the presiding 
officer shall declare the election postponed. At the next regular meet- 
ing, if the recommendation of the Committee on Membership shall be 
renewed, he may be admitted by the votes of two-thirds of the members 
present. 

Section 4. Active members shall pay as annual dues to the Society

present's Ctbbress, 



To the Members of the Connecticut Historical Society: 

The thirtieth of this month marks the one hundredth anni- 
versary of the organization of this Society, and it seems fitting 
that mention of the fact should be made at this time. The 
General Assembly then in session having passed an act to in- 
corporate the Connecticut Historical Society naming thirty- 
one incorporators, a meeting for incorporation was held at the 
State House in Hartford on May 30, 1825, which was pre- 
sided over by the venerable poet and lawyer, Hon. John 
Trumbull, who was chosen president. Other officers chosen 
were Rt. Rev. Thomas C. Brownell, vice president; Thomas 
Day, Esq., recording secretary; Rev. Thomas Robbins, cor- 
responding secretary; Walter Mitchell, Esq., treasurer. An 
address was made by Dr. Robbins on the objects of the Society; 
and an adjournment was taken to the following day. At the 
adjourned meeting on May 31 a constitution was adopted 
which was signed by sixteen members, organization was com- 
pleted by the appointment of a standing committee, and an 
adjournment was taken for two days. On June 2 at the ad- 
journed meeting twenty-eight persons were proposed for mem- 
bership; and the Society may be considered as fairly launched 
upon its career. The removal of Judge Trumbull to Michigan 
later in the year was a blow to the Society from which it 
almost failed to recover. Its activities lessened and finally 
ceased with the failure to hold an annual election, so that it 
became "a matter of doubt whether the Charter of said 
Society is not forfeited by non-user." At this juncture appli- 
cation was made to the Assembly for a renewal of the charter 
of the Society, and an act of renewal was passed in May 1839. 
From this time the Society has steadily pursued its activities. 
The founding of the Society was no doubt due to the interest 
and efforts of Rev. Thomas Robbins, D.D., its first correspond- 
ing secretary and later its first librarian and, until the recent 
legacy from Mr. Hoadley, its greatest benefactor. Like credit 



10 

should be given for its revival in 1839 to Hon. Henry Barnard, 
who later became its third president. 

In the most important matter now under consideration by 
the Society, that of the erection of a building with the fund 
left for that purpose by the will of our former life member, 
George E. Hoadley, no definite steps have yet been taken. It 
seems, however, as if the time had now come when this prob- 
lem should receive attention, and unless the Society feels 
differently, the committee that is now serving will give, dur- 
ing the coming year, its earnest attention to the solution of 
this problem. The amount received by the Society in Decem- 
ber 1923 from the distribution of Mr. Hoadley's estate was 
$257,494.25. Through receipt and investment of income, re- 
investment of a small portion of the principal, increase through 
stock dividends and appreciation in the value of securities this 
fund has now grown to a total value of $403,247.50; which it 
is believed is an amount sufficient to erect a building adequate 
for the needs of the Society. 

The will of George H. Fitts of Ashford, Conn., who died 
January 10, 1925, and who has been a member of the Society 
for almost thirty years, contained a provision leaving a legacy 
of ten thousand dollars to the Society. It was specified in the 
will that this legacy should be held as a fund to be named the 
"George Henry Fitts Fund in Memory of Colonel Thomas 
Knowlton." Mr. Fitts was a great-grandson of Colonel 
Knowlton. 

A circular was mailed to our members in December, telling 
of some of the treasures belonging to the Society and of the 
work which it is endeavoring to do and setting forth its finan- 
cial needs. Several members in response to this circular have 
sent checks for sums varying from twenty-five to one hundred 
and twenty-five dollars. These sums have been added to our 
general fund. 

During the year now closing twenty-three persons have been 
admitted to active membership and two have been added to 
our ex-officio list. Two who had been annual members have 
constituted themselves members for life. Sixteen active mem- 
bers, one of whom was a life member, have died. One mem- 
ber has resigned and several who had allowed their dues to 
become in arears have been dropped from our rolls. Our 



present membership consists of 20 ex-officio members, one of 
whom is also an active member, 492 active, of whom 32 are 
members for life, one honorary and two corresponding mem- 
bers; a total membership of 515. 

We record the loss by death of the following members:

bership in July 1889, prominent in the legal profession 
and a former president of this Society, died December 
3 J > J 924-

teacher in that town, a life member, admitted May 
1890, died in California October 13, 1924.

States senator from this state, admitted May 1905, died 
October 14, 1924.

cut Supreme Court, became an ex-officio member in 
March 1917 and died January 16, 1925. 

Col. Charles E. Thompson of Hartford, admitted No- 
vember 1920, long connected with insurance interests 
and at the time of his death governor of the Connecti- 
cut Society of Mayflower Descendants, died September 
25, 1924. 

Mrs. Katharine S. Bacon of Middletown, who was con- 
nected with many prominent families of the state, was 
admitted December 1920 and died June 24, 1924. 



Huber Gray Buehler, principal of Hotchkiss School in 
Lakeville, admitted December 1920, died June 30, 1924. 

Eli Whitney, a prominent resident of New Haven, ad- 
mitted January 1921, died June 12, 1924. 

Frank C. Sumner, admitted March 1921, a prominent 
banker of Hartford, died December 9, 1924. 

William Lucius Armstrong of Hartford, admitted De-' 

cember 19 iS, died September 12, 1924. 

William H. Newell of Hartford, prominent in the life 
insurance field, admitted November 1923, died June S, 
1924. 

Lawrence Brainerd of Cambridge, Mass., a well known 
genealogist, admitted January 1924, died March 12, 
1925. 

The following papers have been read at our regular monthly 
meetings: 

In October a paper by Herbert H. White on the " Defense 
of the sea-coast of Connecticut during the Revolution," 
describing the various fortifications, the raids by the 
British and the activities of the American boats. 

" Cartwright's Journal of the Labrador " was the subject of 
the paper in November by Professor Henry A. Perkins. 
The paper was based upon the story told in the Journal 
and also gave a sketch of Cartwright. 

Rev. Samuel C. Bushnell of New Haven told of "The 
'Monitor' and the ' Merrimac ' — inside information" 
at the December meeting, giving an interesting story of 
the building of the " Monitor" and a vivid description 
of her encounter with the " Merrimac." 

Dr. Allan D. Risteen at the January meeting gave some 
"Side lights on Shakespeare," sketching the times in 
which he lived and giving an account of the families 
with whom he is known to have been acquainted. 

" Lebanon — a legacy " was the title of a charmingly written 
paper describing that old Connecticut Town, which was 
read in February by Harry K. Taylor. 

At the March meeting Dr. George H. Cohen described in 
detail "A new world peace plan" which he had 
evolved. 



George A. Long at the April meeting gave a talk upon 
" Hartford inventors of the past and their achieve- 
ments," sketching the lives of these men and giving 
accounts of important inventions by them. 

At the May meeting Col. Francis Parsons read a paper, 
written in his usual charming style, entitled "Benja- 
min Silliman visits England in 1805." 

It seems fitting to call attention at this time to the gradual 
increase of the principal of the Society's Publication Fund 
through the sale from time to time of books which have been 
presented by the following members: Trescott C. Barnes, 
Robbins Battell, Morgan G. Bulkeley, William H. Bulkeley, 
James J. Goodwin, Mary Hall, Edwin Pond Parker, James 
Shephard, George B. Thayer. 

I would suggest that as soon as arrangements for so doing 
can be made and a favorable opportunity occurs, a permanent 
and full time assistant to the librarian be secured — one who 
may have the benefit of the knowledge and experience of our 
present librarian, and one that may be trained so that when 
the time comes (a time which we hope is in the far distant 
future) that our present librarian feels it desirable to be 
relieved of his duties, we will have some one who can, in a 
measure, fill his place. 

Morgan B. Brainard, 

President.

librarian's Heport. 



Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

Once more the year has rolled around and brings to me the 
not unpleasant duty of again calling to your attention some 
matters of interest relating to the Society and the work which 
it is endeavoring to accomplish. 

It is only a repetition of what has more than once been said 
to state that the overcrowded condition of our rooms continues 
and increases. Shelves are crowded to their limit and in some 
portions of our rooms the floors are so covered with piles of 
books that it is only through narrow and winding paths that 
the room may be traversed. Three tall cases in our hall or 
meeting room have been shelved and filled with large books 
that are seldom used; thus giving some space in our stack 
room for recent accessions. In our newspaper rooms the over- 
flow, from the shelves is stacked in piles on bases raised from 
the floor to avoid dampness. Our manuscript vaults, although 
their contents have been subjected to some rearrangement in 
order to economize space, are now practically filled. Our 
storage space for editions of our publications and other dupli- 
cate books is fully occupied and we have by courtesy of the 
Wadsworth Atheneum already encroached upon that institu- 
tion's scant storage space. Where the edition of even one 
more volume of our " Collections," when issued, can be stored, 
your librarian does not know. It is scarcely necessary to say 
that under these conditions the Society's library cannot be 
used to the best advantage; and your librarian is sometimes 
unable to locate a book or pamphlet that is certainly in the 
library. The present situation from that point of view is 
extremely discouraging. Let us hope, however, that a future 
still brighter than its past is in store for the Society. 

In addition to the usual genealogical workers, students of 
history and incidental users of the library, there have been 
during the year a number of persons doing original research 



work in various historical fields who have made good use of 
our library, some of whom traveled a long distance for the 
purpose. 

The total of accessions during the year, other than manu- 
scripts, is slightly less than last year; but is above the average 
for several preceding years. The gifts were 591 volumes, 584 
pamphlets and 77 miscellaneous. The purchases were 224 
volumes, 241 pamphlets and 114 miscellaneous; among which 
were eight volumes credited to the Charles J. Hoadly fund, 
five volumes to the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund and two 
volumes to the William F. J. Boardman Fund. Two volumes 
and three pamphlets were added by direct exchange. These 
make a total of 817 volumes, 828 pamphlets and 191 miscel- 
laneous; and a grand total of 1836 items. 

The number of readers who from day to day have made use 
of the library during the year now ending is 3,323. This is 
slightly greater than the number for last year, which was con- 
sidered an unusual year; and is more than seven per cent 
above the average for the five years next preceding this. 

"The Wyllys Papers, 1590-1796," forming the twenty-first 
volume of the Society's series of "Collections," upon which 
work has been in progress for two years, were issued in Feb- 
ruary as an octavo volume of 600 pages, including a sketch of 
Gov. George Wyllys and a rather comprehensive index. The 
important positions held by members of this family in Connec- 
ticut during colonial days and the numerous early and inter- 
esting letters and documents which the volume contains, make 
this, it is believed, a book of more than ordinary value. In 
calling attention to this volume mention should again be made 
of the courtesy of Lemuel A. Welles, Esq., a member of the 
Society and owner of the Wyllys manuscripts, in permitting 
the Society to print these manuscripts. 

The "annual report," a pamphlet of 57 pages containing 
the usual review of the Society's activities for the preceding 
year, was issued in July. 

Our collection of printed genealogies has been increased 
during the year by the addition of the following: Avery, 
Bagg, Banning, Bridge, Buck, Chapin, Cowing, Dommerich 
and others, Dutcher, Eaton, Eddy Association, Field Ances- 
try, Haynes, Hillhouse, Hungerford, Jaudon, Judd, McNary, 



Nichols, Nye, Olmsted, Orton, Paine, Perry, Pierce, Piatt, 
Reynolds, Rockwell and Keeler, Rockwell, Spoor, Stearns, 
Taber, Torre}-, Tread well, Underwood, Warner, Winchell, 
Wyatt Ancestry. 

To our unrivaled collection of Connecticut eighteenth cen- 
tury imprints, publications of the following years have been 
added: 1 717, 1783, [1786?], 17S7, 17S9, 1796, 1798, 1799. 

A number of the once popular annuals and gift books have 
been added to our extensive collection of these publications; 
a collection established through the gift a few years ago by 
our member Caroline M. He wins of her splendid collections of 
these works. 

The Hartford Printing Company (Elihu Geer Sons) have 
continued the building of our library of directories of different 
cities by the gift of 76 volumes. These out of date volumes 
are consulted much more frequently than might be supposed, 
and are often referred to by the life insurance companies, as 
well as by persons who are seeking missing relatives or 
friends. 

The generous gift received from two of our members, Ed- 
ward B. Morris and John Felt Morris was a most welcome and 
valuable one. It consists of books, pamphlets, newspaper 
clippings and manuscripts gathered or prepared by two former 
and now deceased members, John E. Morris and Mrs. Mary 
P. Morris, parents of the donors. A majority of the books 
and pamphlets are publications of various patriotic and heredi- 
tary societies. Foremost among the clippings are two series 
mounted in scrap books and reaching back for about a genera- 
tion of time from the present. The first series consists of 131 
volumes of "Obituary Notices" accompanied by three manu- 
script volumes of index. The second of 52 volumes of " Social 
Notes " accompanied by two manuscript volumes of index. 
These volumes have already proved their worth, and the}' will 
grow increasingly valuable as the years pass. Already on one 
occasion a volume of the Obituaries furnished desired informa- 
tion about a deceased public man, who had had a national 
career, that could not be found in any published book and 
that two of the largest libraries of the country could not 
supply. There are also a quantity of clippings roughly 
assorted under date or subject, that remain in boxes, tin- 



mounted and unindexed. Naturally these clippings are to a 
certain degree local in their nature; but they contain much 
that is of nation wide and even of international interest. 
Accompanying the above series are Hartford Times genealogi- 
cal notes mounted in five volumes, historical articles relating 
to Hartford mounted in two volumes, and Boston Transcript 
genealogical notes for about fifteen years, carefully arranged 
in chronological order, but unmounted. The manuscript 
genealogies and copies of records, which are listed elsewhere 
in this report, form valuable additions to our collections along 
these lines. 

Among publications of special interest added to the library 
may be mentioned Philips' Notes on the Life and Works of 
Bernard Romans, Akagi's Town Proprietors of the New Eng- 
land Colonies, Minutes of Methodist Conferences in America 
1 773-1 794, three volumes relating to Lorenzo and Peggy 
Dow, the first eleven volumes (1S47-1S57) of the Derby 
Journal; Abridged Compendium of American Genealogy. and 
Jones' Old Silver of American Churches from Vice President 
Williams, Victoria History of the Counties of England, Wor- 
cester vol. 4, Berkshire vol. 4, and Index to York, from 
our late Vice President James J. Goodwin, Old Times of North 
Yarmouth, Me., volume of scarce pamphlets by Rev. Samuel 
Fisk of Lebanon, Authentic Narrative of the Seminole War 
printed at Providence in 1836 and apparently an edition un- 
known to collectors, the revised edition of Nutting's Pilgrim 
Furniture — the dedication copy — the gift of Henry W. Erviug 
to whom it was dedicated, Kelly's Early Domestic Architec- 
ture of Connecticut the gift of President Brainard, Johnson's 
Wonder Working Providences printed at London in 1654, the 
gift of Clifford E. Bristol of Winsted, unfortunately not a per- 
fect copy, a set of the Wyoming Commemorative Association 
reports from our member E. S. Tillotson. 

A paper entitled Some Notes on Wampum, written and 
read before the Society by our member E. Stanley Welles, has 
been privately published by him and one half of the edition 
presented to the Society to be sold. Proceeds from the sale of 
these pamphlets are to be allowed to accumulate until they 
amount to two hundred dollars, which sum is to form the 
principal of a fuud the income of which is to be expended in 



the purchase of books for the library. By vote of the Society 
this fund has been named the Edwin Stanley Welles Fund. 

On the occasion of the reading of this paper by Mr. Welles, 
a rather unusual display of strings of wampum was shown in 
one of our cases. A part of this was the property of the 
Society and the remainder was loaned for the occasion by one 
of our members. 

A small portrait on canvas of John Lawrence of Hartford, 
painted by a member of the Lawrence family, was presented 
to us by his great-great-great-granddaughter, Mary K. Hast- 
ings of Hartford, who has previously made valuable gifts to 
the Society. John Lawrence for twenty years from 1 769-1 789 
held the important position of treasurer of Connecticut. Pie 
was also United States commissioner of loans for Connecticut 
during the Revolution. 

At the time last month of the one hundred and fiftieth anni- 
versary of the encounter at Lexington and Concord a display 
of rare documents, engravings and printed matter closely con- 
nected with that event was made. The most important of the 
manuscripts was the official announcement of the engagement, 
dated "In Provintial Congress Watertown April 23, 1775," 
signed by " Joseph Warren Presid 1 Pro Temp," and dispatched 
by John Bliss, a member of that Congress, "To the Gov'' & 
Co of Connecticutt." The most important prints were a 
colored set of the four scenes engraved by Amos Doolittle of 
New Haven depicting the advance and retreat of the British 
and the engagements at Lexington green and Concord bridge. 
The April twenty-eighth issue of the Connecticut Gazette, 
published in Xew London showing the first detailed account of 
the engagement printed in Connecticut. Numerous other 
items of interest were also shown. 

A splendid addition to the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund 
was received from the Case, Lockwood & Brainard Company 
in the gift from that company to the Society of the remaining 
unsold copies of the Vital Records of Woodstock, 16S6-1854, 
issued in 1914 as the fourth in the series of Connecticut Vital 
Records. A further welcome addition to this fund was re- 
ceived from Hon. Newton C. Brainard who presented to the 
Society the remaining copies of the Orderly Book of Lieut. 
Abraham Chittenden, Adj't 7th Conn. Reg't, Aug. 16 to 



Sept. 29, 1776, which was privately issued by him three years 
ago. Proceeds from the sale of these volumes are to be added 
to the principal of this fund. Miss Brainard's cash gifts for 
this fund from time to time amounted to $1,000 and many 
years ago when the fund was small $100 was by vote of the 
Society added to the principal from the accrued income. Pro- 
ceeds from the sale of books presented by Miss Brainard and 
by her nephews Morgan B. Brainard, our president, and Hon. 
Newton C. Brainard, together with increase of the fund 
through wise investment have already added $450 to the 
principal of this fund. 

Two local events of more than passing historical interest 
have been called to the attention of our members at our regu- 
lar meetings, and so have been entered upon the records of 
the Society: the total eclipse of the sun on the morning of 
January twenty-fourth and the distinct earthquake shock 
which occurred on the evening of February twenty-eighth. 

The following have been added during the year to our col- 
lection of manuscripts by the persons named:
